13th Annual DRBF International Conference
May 2-4, 2013
This popular conference brings together Dispute Board practitioners from around the world. Day one offers a full day of practical case study in workshop format. For the first time, the two-day conference will offer split sessions on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Participants will have the choice between sessions on the mechanics and procedures of how Dispute Boards function or more advanced topics for experienced practitioners. Content will include an update on the use and financing of Dispute Boards by international financing institutions and the European Union; a look at best practice in public/private partnerships in international construction projects; and the impact of the ICC Dispute Board Center and FIDIC Conditions of Contract.. Legal experts will explore the use of DBs in the civil law countries of France, Germany, Italy and Spain, and report on current developments in enforcement and other matters. In addition, there will be an update on major projects using DBs from Latin America and France (TGV and ITER), and growth of the process in Asia and Africa. Delegates are encouraged to register early and make hotel reservations early, as Paris is popular in the Spring and space is limited.
