Event description
The eighth Dispute Appointment Service (DAS) Convention is a CIArb flagship event and will be delivered online for the first time this year.

About this Event

The Dispute Appointment Service (DAS) Convention has been designed to gather members of the judiciary, together with a distinguished group of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) experts, to engage in a high-level discussion of selected topics in the areas of arbitration, mediation and construction adjudication.

This flagship event aims to provide ADR practitioners and businesses with a forum to address and discuss practical issues associated with the role performed by dispute resolution professionals.

The theme of the eighth DAS Convention is 'Handling disputes in an era of uncertainty'.

The events of 2020 have demonstrated just how fragile and unpredictable the world can be. From commercial contracts to working practices and global commerce, COVID-19 has disrupted every aspect of our economic and social lives. What’s more, this crisis has emerged against a backdrop of much broader, long-term disruptions, such as the impact of automation, the changing landscape of global supply chains and global heating. In this environment, it is more important than ever that businesses are equipped with the knowledge and options to handle disputes effectively, and that the disputes profession itself adapts to new economic terrain.

Over the course of the event, participants will hear from experts across sustainability, technological innovation and the business community on how the profession is leading the way in innovation, and how the COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the process of change and adaptation. Most importantly, the discussion will emphasise the role of disputes professionals as a catalyst for commerce and prosperity, and examine how the profession can better meet the needs of business.
