Contracts and Clauses

CONTRACTS & CLAUSES | ICMA RECEPTION November 2017 BIMCO hosts 200 ICMA participants at home of contracts and clauses B IMCO House warmly welcomed more than 200 guests attending the International Congress of Maritime Arbitrators (ICMA) in Copenhagen. ICMA is held around the world every two or three years and gathers maritime arbitrators, lawyers and other stakeholders within the global shipping industry for a week-long congress on recent developments in maritime law and arbitration. ICMA was hosted this time in Copenhagen by the Danish Institute of Arbitration from 25 to 29 September. The reception took place at the home of BIMCOs contracts and clauses activities, which are of particular relevance to ICMA participants As a side-event to the Congress, BIMCOs reception on 26 September provided an ideal opportunity for guests to meet, discuss and network in an informal setting. The reception took place in the home of contracts and clauses highly relevant to ICMA participants. Angus Frew, Secretary General and CEO at BIMCO said: BIMCO is the worlds largest international shipping association, with 2,100 members in more than 120 countries. Our activities, and in particular those relating to our contracts and clauses, are naturally of interest to ICMA participants. The reception was an excellent opportunity for us to strengthen ties with shipping experts from all over the world attending ICMA, who will have a keen interest in BIMCOs work, and showcase our state-of-the-art headquarters. Participants at the reception have longstanding experience working with maritime law and arbitration. Yet, many did not know BIMCO House and appreciated the opportunity to visit BIMCOs engine room, meet BIMCO staff and hear more about our many activities, including those in the area of products, training, regulation, and information and advice.
