ABOUT

The São Paulo Arbitration Week (SPAW) is a collaborative event conceived as an organized calendar for law firms, universities, associations and institutions to promote events in a productive environment in benefit of the development of ADRs.

The event is an opportunity for the ever-growing arbitration community in São Paulo to discuss pressing issues and to exchange experiences with foreign practitioners.

São Paulo has experienced an unprecedented growth in ADRs. Friendly Courts, state-of-the-art infrastructure and a demanding market forged São Paulo as a natural hub for International Arbitration.

Therefore, and considering the wide range of events happening in October connected to the subject, SPAWs role is to facilitate and gather all the information concerning these events.

An opportunity such as the São Paulo Arbitration Week could not be missed.

4th Edition | CAM-CCBC

I. Definitions

SP Arbitration Week | The São Paulo Arbitration Week (“SPAW”) is an annual initiative organized by the Center for Arbitration and Mediation of the CCBC (“CAM-CCBC”), consisting of an online platform (https://www.sparbitrationweek.com.br/) in which all events related to alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) occurring in the second-to-last week of October of each year are gathered. The initiative’s objective is to raise awareness of São Paulo as a safe international arbitration seat and to promote dispute resolution in the country and abroad.

Rules | These are the rules for the 2021 SPAW (“Rules”). The Rules are reviewed annually and are subject to change from one edition to another. Reliance on any past rules or practice will not in itself be an acceptable excuse for the failure to comply with the Rules of the current SPAW.

II. Language

Language of the SPAW | Any written communications concerning the SPAW will be published in English, including the wording of the Rules and the website. For internal communications, the CAM-CCBC’s Organizing Committee (“Committee”) is fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish. Nevertheless, we request that all information concerning events be sent exclusively in English. In case information about an event is sent in Portuguese only, the Committee will freely translate it for the platform.

Language of events | The Committee strongly recommends that the events inform the language of the panels and the availability of simultaneous interpretation to and from English.

III. Registration

Registration in the SPAW platform | Registration of an event in the SPAW platform is a two-step process consisting of completion of the registration form and payment of the enrollment fee. The upload of the information to the platform will occur within the next 10 (ten) business days following the receipt of the enrollment fee’s proof of payment, if the event meets the requirements (see item IV below).

Enrollment Fee | Enrollment of an event in the SPAW will be complete with the payment of a donation to a social entity. The minimum symbolic enrollment fee is of R$ 100.00, although higher contributions are most welcome. CAM-CCBC has listed some options below, which are not mandatory:

 

 

Deadline | Registration in the SPAW platform will be accepted from 14 July 2021 until 04 October 2021. In the exceptional case you will not be able to meet the deadline, please contact us at [email protected], preferably before the deadline.

Registration and organization of the events | CAM-CCBC is not responsible for the registration of delegates or organization of every event included in the SPAW, exception made to those it organizes. Any doubts regarding the registration of delegates or problems related to their organization shall be sent directly to the organization of the event.

IV. Requirements

Events’ format | Considering CAM-CCBC’S efforts to preserve the integrity of our community, we strongly recommend all events registered in the SPAW platform in 2021 be organized virtually.  All events registered in the SPAW platform must occur in strict compliance with the public health recommendations related to the coronavirus (Covid-19)

ADRs | The events registered in the SPAW platform shall discuss issues related to alternative dispute resolution methods – ADRs.

Speakers | The events registered in the SPAW platform must include at least 30% of female speakers.

Satisfaction survey | A satisfaction survey form will be available at the SPAW website. We kindly request that you mention the survey to your event’s attendees and fill the form with your impressions of the platform, so we may improve it.

Mention of the SPAW | The website or invitation of the event shall mention its enrollment in the SPAW and include SPAW’s logo.  We request that such materials are sent to the committee for approval.

V. Promotion

Social media | The Committee may promote the events registered in the SPAW in CAM-CCBC’s social media, prior, during and after the SPAW. Each day of the SPAW, the agenda will be published on social media.

Website | All information requested in the SPAW platform registration form will be published in the SPAW website in up to 10 (ten) business days after receiving of the form, if the event meets the requirements.

VI. Event report

Report | A group of people selected by the CAM-CCBC will produce small reports concerning SPAW events, which will be available in the SPAW website after the end of the week. The aim of the report is to publicize the contents of each event for those who did not have the opportunity to attend.

Attendance | Considering the necessity of production of the report, we kindly request that each event reserves one complimentary registration for attendance of the person who will produce such document.

VII. Contact

Contact Details | All communications regarding the SPAW platform shall be sent by email to: [email protected]. Questions concerning each individual event shall be sent to the organization of the event.

Satisfaction Survey

The Satisfaction Survey of the SP Arbitration Week 2021 aims to assess the quality of the platform provided so we may improve it in its next edition. It also aims to provide a feedback from participants to the organizers of the events that took part in SPAW’s initiative. It will not take more than 5 minutes. We thank you in advance.

Kind regards,
Organization Committee of the SPAW 2021
