ICMA XXI - Marc 8-13 Rio Brazil
An important event in every maritime and commercial arbitrator's calendar, the International Congress of Maritime Arbitrators (ICMA) is a forum for maritime arbitrators, lawyers and for the shipping industry from around the world in which to deliberate on and exchange views and news of professional interest. ICMA is a series of conferences which are held every 2 or 3 years in the spirit of a joint effort to promote maritime arbitration all over the world.
The Twenty First International Congress of Maritime Arbitrators (ICMA XXI) will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 8 - 13 March 2020.
ICMA has grown to host delegates from 26 countries on average, presenting approximately 50 papers. The international maritime conferences are generally composed of arbitrators, lawyers, ship owners, charterers, other industry professionals and their guests.
