THE EVENT

The 28th IPBA Annual Meeting and Conference is an avenue to discuss and dissect legal trends, opportunities and challenges brought by ASEAN integration and how it improves the professional and the business landscape in the region.

With the creation of an integrated ASEAN region, member nations will see a more integrated approach of doing business and creating opportunities across and even beyond its reach. This poses a variety of positive effects such as free-flow of business and exchange of resources which makes it easier for countries to collaborate. What is its implication, specifically to the legal profession? And how does it affect the current practice and trend of doing business?

The annual meeting and conference will be held at the Shangri-La at The Fort, Bonifacio Global City on March 14-16, 2018.

DESTINATION: PHILIPPINES

About the Organizers

The Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA) is an international association of business and commercial lawyers who live in, or have a strong interest, in the Asia-Pacific region. It was established in April 1991 at an inaugural conference held in Tokyo, attended by more than 500 lawyers from the Asia-Pacific region.

The IPBA has over 1,500 members in more than 60 jurisdictions worldwide, and a track record of 27 years of successful annual conferences throughout the world. With 23 specialist committees from which to choose, the IPBA has members representing the entire spectrum of business and commercial legal work. The IPBA is a relatively small, close-knit organization which provides networking opportunities, whether in the same area of law across the region, or even the world.
