arbıtratıon days

The inaugural edition of Istanbul Arbitration Days will take place on 18-20 April 2024 in Istanbul. This exclusive in-person event is expected to welcome over 500 attendees, including distinguished international and local arbitration practitioners, industry experts, academics and students.

We aim to establish this event as the cornerstone of arbitration in Türkiye and in the wider region, significantly contributing to the advancement of both national and international arbitration practices by having world-class speakers discussing hot topics in arbitration together with local and global business communities. Beyond the mainstage, the Istanbul Arbitration Days will offer several side events designed to foster substantive connections and collaborative opportunities.

During Istanbul Arbitration Days, participants will have unparalleled networking opportunities to engage with arbitration practitioners from Turkish and international law firms, corporate counsels, arbitrators, company executives and governmental entities.
