Criteria and Considerations

Location

  • Rotation of the Annual Global Meeting among the three regions is an important factor in selecting a conference host city, but Multilaw does not adhere to any strict regional rotation. To check when your city or a nearby city last hosted a conference, please view the list of host cities for previous conferences. Click here
  • Provide information regarding proposed conference location including:

Venue

  • Accommodation must be convenient to the conference location and reasonably priced options available.  
  •  A suitable venue is required within the host city which offers an accessible location with the appropriate facilities to hold the working sessions including a main meeting room with sufficient capacity for our group size (attendance levels are typically 100-150) and breakout rooms.   In your application, please provide a list of at least three (3) hotels in your city that could accommodate our group and whether you have a preference amongst them and why.
  • Please advise if your firm’s offices in the host city are sufficiently large to host smaller meetings (typically 25-30) during and before the conference, as well as a welcome delegate cocktail reception on the first evening.   Also, please specify whether the office is within walking distance of proposed accommodations or whether transportation will be required.
  • Please provide some options you recommend for venues for the closing dinner on Saturday evening.  Please advise whether it is within walking distance of your recommended accommodations or whether transportation will be required.

Content
