The Global Pound Conference Series 2016-2017

Initiated by the International Mediation Institute (a not-for-profit organisation), the Global Pound Conference (GPC) Series 2016-17 will facilitate the development of 21st century commercial dispute resolution tools, at domestic, regional and international levels. We invite you to get involved. 
Launched in Singapore and finishing in London in 2017, the GPC Series is a not-for-profit global project that will convene all stakeholders in dispute resolution - commercial parties,  chambers of commerce, lawyers, academics, judges, arbitrators, mediators, policy makers, government officials, and others - at conferences around the world. Currently scheduled to take place in 40 cities across 31  countries, t hese conferences will provoke debate on existing tools and techniques, stimulate new ideas and generate actionable data on what corporate and individual dispute resolution users actually need and want, both locally and globally.
Be part of the Global Pound Conference Series and help shape the future of dispute resolution.  >>Why should I attend a local event?
