In an Arbitration Agreement, if the venue is specified, it is binding irrespective of the presence or absence of any of the parties' office at that venue or any interaction [as you said]. With respect to jurisdiction of civil courts, when more courts than one have jurisdiction [because of cause of action arising at different places], then parties may agree to confer jurisdiction on one of such courts, but they cannot by agreement confer jurisdiction on a court which does not have jurisdiction.
