Each group will consist of a mix of seven (7) to eight (8) practitioners who possess two (2) to twelve (12) years of PQE (post-qualification experience), to encourage the exchange of diverse experiences and perspectives on the specified themes. 

This event also aims to facilitate a free flow of thoughts and ideas among young and emerging practitioners, who will each have a role to play in the way that the field of arbitration evolves and shapes up in the coming years.
