The IPO Annual Meeting: An IP event not to miss
The 47th congregation of the IP Owners’ Association features a stellar line-up
Offering a mixture of networking opportunities, committee meetings, educational programmes led by IP industry leaders, and CLE credit, the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Intellectual Property Owners Association will be taking place between 24-26 September at the Marriott Marquis in Washington D.C., with a “special event” taking place at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
Keynote speakers will include USPTO Director Andrei Iancu and EPO President António Campos. As usual, the three-day Meeting will convene IP lawyers, in-house experts, academics and government representatives, as well as IP service providers, from around the world – and all for the discussion of trends, strategies, best practices and thought leadership.

You’ll also be able to pick up copies of Leaders League’s latest IP guides, which were launched at the INTA Annual Meeting in Boston a couple of months ago. Don’t miss out!
