ICCA Edinburgh Congress Rescheduled

A message from ICCA President Lucy Reed


I write with the very good news that the XXVth ICCA Congress is now re-re-scheduled from February 2021 to 26-29 September 2021 in Edinburgh.


We have been monitoring the Covid-19 travel and gathering restrictions closely, and it has become increasingly evident that the Congress could not go ahead in February in anything near our traditional format. While nothing about the pandemic and its impact on our lives is predictable, we believe that the new September 2021 dates give us the best chance to meet in person, engage with speakers, share knowledge, and simply spend time with friends old and new – something we are now missing so much.


This could not have happened without the unstinting efforts of the Edinburgh Congress Host, the Scottish Arbitration Centre, led by Brandon Malone and Andrew Mackenzie, and the flexibility shown by the Programme Committee, led by Cavinder Bull, Loretta Malintoppi and Constantine Partasides.  They are planning a spectacular Congress, including the belated celebration we will share at the Gala Dinner in the National Museum of Scotland.


Currently-registered delegates of the Congress will receive a separate communication from the Congress Host regarding registration and hotel accommodation.


Thank you again for your patience during these difficult times. We look forward to welcoming many of you in Edinburgh in September 2021 and to making this ICCA’s best Congress yet.


With my best regards,


Lucy Reed

ICCA President
