Scene at the Guildhall, London

CIArb celebrated its Centenary throughout 2015.

We held a number of flagship events: conferences in the UK and overseas, while our 37 CIArb Branches organised their own Centenary events.

The celebrations were attended by many CIArb members, prospective members, clients, retired members of staff, professionals associated in other professions, opinion formers and government officials.
