Sian Edmunds Why is a change to allergen labelling laws necessary and what will happen next?

The IBA Annual Conference 2019 will be held in Seoul, South Korea, a thriving metropolis that mixes the traditional with the modern – from skyscrapers, high-tech subways, K-pop culture and K-beauty to Buddhist temples, palaces and street markets and a history going back 5,000 years. This technologically forward, but deeply traditional city, located between the North Asian powerhouses of Japan and China, is an ideal location for the largest and most prestigious event for international lawyers.
