As the inaugural Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Asia-Pacific Annual Meeting on 11 April draws closer, the event looks certain to deliver on its promise of a unique experience for the regional in-house community.

The conference venue, the Island Shangri-La in Hong Kong, will host 200 delegates drawn from 12 countries, giving the event a strong international presence and attracting leading general counsel from some of the worlds’ most prominent brands.

According to Tanya Khan, managing director and vice president, ACC Asia-Pacific: “In developing this event, we wanted to deliver a compelling offering that would draw on ACC’s experience in delivering unique events for in-house counsel, while delivering an event programme that highlighted and addressed the unique challenges facing the Asia-Pacific region.

“To date, the response from the Asia-Pacific in-house community has been amazing and we’re delighted to have attracted such a diverse audience to the event.”

The event will include two keynote speakers addressing vastly different topics, both of which are of real relevance to the in-house sector. Dane Chamorro, senior partner at Control Risks, will discuss the complex topic of navigating the new geo-political and economic reality in the Asia-Pacific region.

The second speaker, Winnie Cheung, chief legal director at Microsoft Hong Kong, will highlight the converging legal and ethical issues arising from programming, robotics and artificial intelligence.

The one-day event will also feature three concurrent content streams across: Law Department Management; Innovation & Legal Technology; and Substantive Law.

Due to the late addition of extra event space, limited registrations are still available. Please visit the event page for more information.
