Participate in Australian Arbitration Week

Australian Arbitration Week 2024 will be held in the week of 13 to 18 October 2024 in Brisbane.

AAW Event Proposals

In response to significant interest and to manage, where possible, duplication of topics and overlap of events aimed at the same audience, organisations interested in participating in Australian Arbitration Week 2024 must submit the following information to ACICA before 15 April 2024:

  • Event title (we encourage creativity as this will be the only description published directly on the Australian Arbitration Week Calendar of Events).
  • Brief description/tentative program for the proposed event (100 words).
  • Proposed speakers (even if not confirmed).
  • Three preferences for the date and time for your event.
  • Venue or format/platform (virtual, hybrid or otherwise).
  • Intended audience.
  • Identification of the appropriate contact person managing the event.
  • Confirmation of the participating organisation’s commitment to the Australian Arbitration Week Principles and an indication as to the steps it will take to ensure compliance.  Please note that ACICA will consider removing events from the calendar if they do not comply with the Principles.

Proposals will be reviewed by ACICA and the date and time of the event confirmed to the participating organisation in writing.

Please note the following:

  • Taking into account feedback received in 2023, a maximum of two events will be included in the Calendar from any one participating organisation. This does not include events being hosted by an organisation eg. law firm on behalf of another participating organisation. A separate submission is required for each event.
  • While ACICA will make every effort to offer a participating organisation one of its preferred time slots, this may not be possible in every instance. Once time slots are confirmed, no changes will be made.
  • Exclusivity in time slots is not guaranteed. ACICA will make every effort to ensure that events that will run concurrently in the Calendar are intended for different audiences.
  • Please note that event organisation is the responsibility of the participating organisation (for eg. ACICA does not organise venues for participating organisations).

Any proposals received after 15 April 2024, may not be able to be accommodated.

Once your event has been confirmed, participating organisations must submit the following information for inclusion in the Australian Arbitration Week Calendar of Events before 30 June 2024:

  • Host organisation logo
  • Event flyer with details of speakers and topics covered
  • Registration link (if necessary)

Failure to provide confirmed event details by the deadline may result in your event being removed from the Australian Arbitration Week Calendar of Events.

Minor updates only to events (ie. changes to speakers due to availability issues) will be accommodated until 30 September 2024. It will not be possible to make changes to event details after this date.
