The “BXL DebateFest” is a half-day seminar of the ICC YAF which will bring together young arbitration practitioners in a debate competition on issues surrounding evidence in international arbitration. Accommodation for up to 20 participants coming from outside Belgium will be provided.

The aim of this event is to encourage young arbitration practitioners to debate topical and recurring issues in international arbitration. This edition will focus on issues surrounding evidence in international arbitration and attendees will be divided in teams by the organizing committee. The participants' performance will be assessed by a three-member arbitral tribunal.

Who should attend?

This conference is aimed at young arbitration practitioners of approximately 40 years or under (yet, everyone interested in the subject is welcome): counsel, arbitrators, corporate counsel or academics. The ICC YAF Conference is an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration and to enrich their network in the region. This event will be held in English.
