The event, International
Arbitration in Latin America, the ICC Perspective: Revisiting the basics, is
expected to attract some 400 lawyers, corporate counsel, arbitrators,
mediators, and academics from across Latin America and the Caribbean. Discussions
will be in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
To commemorate the conference’s 10th anniversary, Horacio
Grigera Naon (Argentina), Luiz Olavo Baptista (Brazil), Claus von Wobeser
(Mexico) and Bernardo Cremades (Spain), four of the most renowned and
influential experts in Latin America, will be interviewed about international
arbitration in the region over the last decade. The interview will be conducted
by journalist and writer Carlos Alberto Montaner.
“We expect ICC’s 10th Miami Conference to be a
fascinating forum and a chance to get down to the fundamentals of what has and
hasn’t worked over the past decade in international arbitration, particularly
in the Latin American region,” said Andrea Carlevaris, Secretary General for
the ICC International Court of Arbitration. “The event has become one of the
most important annual gatherings for the Latin American arbitration community
and one of the most important arbitration events more generally.
With Brazil set to host the FIFA World Cup in 2014 and
Olympic Games in 2016, the conference will also feature a special session on arbitration
in world sport entitled, ICC Arbitration Special: The World Cup and Olympics coming to Latin
America, on 11 November. Panellists will draw on experiences from the 2012 Olympics
and discuss the legal challenges of organizing worldwide sports events,
considering the role of arbitration in resolving related disputes.
Featuring acclaimed international speakers, a new
format and new venue, this year’s ICC Miami Conference has so far attracted a
record number of sponsors. To mark the 10th anniversary, conference proceedings
