Seoul proudly presents a new global annual event on alternative dispute resolution

It is the Seoul ADR Festival

Join the Festival. Enrich your understanding of ADR. See new opportunities emerge

Five reasons to participate:

(1)  Seoul ADR Festival (SAF) is not just about arbitration and mediation, but also about other newer and more innovative means of dispute resolution. Discussion topics are carefully chosen to provide you with the broadest perspective on the current landscape of ADR, and also to invite your creative input. Come share your expertise.

(2)  SAF will focus on the Asia-Pacific, one of the most rapidly developing parts of the globe.

(3)  SAF will invite organizations and institutions working on the frontiers of ADR, and provide them with opportunities to share their information about this young and vibrant region.

(4)  SAF will invite businessmen and policy makers to explore the potential of ADR in various business sectors that are rapidly globalizing. See the future of ADR. See opportunities emerge.

(5)  SAF is completely free of charge. Consider it as one of the ways in which Korea is returning the favours it had received from various parts of the globe

(6)  Seoul waits for you with warm heart. If you are not persuaded yet, come for the beauty of Seoul in its autumn colours.

Come and enjoy the season, come and enjoy the Festival.
