North American Meeting 2022, Florence, Italy

The North American Meeting in Florence on 2 and 3 June was a great success. Having waited two years for the Meeting to finally take place, Combar members and our Honorary Overseas members were able to make up for lost time and enjoy lively and interesting discussion. The programme line up worked well with a good balance of substantive, comparative, procedural and acquired wisdom. The St Regis Hotel was a perfect venue for the conference, with its high ceilings and beautiful decorations and delegates did not feel trapped by the windowless rooms that are the usual custom for conference venues. The al fresco social events were lovely too and we were blessed with sunshine and warm weather throughout our time in Florence. Special thanks to all our panel speakers and to Jim Drake QC for inviting delegates to visit his vineyard at the weekend. I’m told business was brisk!

News about the venue for 2023 will be announced in due course.
