• Welcome Message

IPBA 2020 is the 30th Annual Meeting and Conference in the IPBA history, which will be held in Shanghai, China. China is the world's second largest economy and Shanghai is the largest city in China. As companies and businesses throughout this region become more deeply involved in the Asia-Pacific regional economy as well as in the global economy, they require expert legal assistance and guidance from lawyers in their home countries as well as from lawyers throughout the region and even beyond. The IPBA annual meeting provides valuable opportunities for business and commercial lawyers throughout the region to network with lawyers of similar interests and related fields of practice.
2020 will witness a more open and booming economy in the Pacific Asia region. The IPBA 2020 will be an exciting and successful event for networking, communication, education and cooperation.
IPBA 2020 will be held from 20th to 23th, April, 2020 in Shanghai. We look forward to hearing from you and welcome you to Shanghai for the annual gathering.
