Answer ... According to the Arbitration law, the choice of the seat is without prejudice to the arbitral tribunal’s power to convene in any place it deems appropriate, which entails the possible conduct of hearings and meetings abroad.

Egyptian courts have also acknowledged the distinction between the legal seat and the geographical venue for conducting one or more procedures of the arbitration.
