IP World Summit

Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Premier Global IP Event Filled With Industry Experts from the Worlds Leading Industries

The ever-shifting IP landscape, the challenge for global companies is how to simplify and focus their approach. As the world is ever-more interconnected, it's important that IP approaches are simplified to allow themselves to respond to the changing global landscape. Developing and implementing multinational IP strategies has become ever more necessary, to ensure there is enough planning to support the portfolio

The IP World Summit is a one-stop shop for IP leaders offering a mix of thought-provoking and practical sessions now covering a range of approaches to IP protection, strategy, and monetisation, including patents, brand protection, copyright, licensing and trademarks.

Designed exclusively for Chief Intellectuals Property Officers, Heads of Patents, Heads of IP, IP Managers, and Patent Attorneys, IP World Summit provides the opportunity to learn from global leaders about how to balance an increasing business interest in your IP portfolio. We look forward to welcoming you in October!

Benefits of Attending

  • What should we patent? As innovations narrow and enforcement becomes more difficult, how are other IP leaders approaching their portfolios?
  • What are your peers' experiences of trade secrets? How can you maintain them on a practical level?
  • How will others implement the European Trade Secrets Directive?
  • Innovation and IP: How can your strategy incentivise inventions in the right direction for future business growth?
  • Technology industry focus: Dealing with patent cycles that are slower than the rate of innovation, and navigating the complex IP structures behind open source

Why You Should Attend

Global demand for intellectual property tools shows no sign of abating, with increased prominence from Asian markets, notably China, Japan and Korea, with internal innovators and foreign entities seeking to protect and promote their work the world over. However, it's not just the more established players making waves nowadays. As WIPO's Global Innovation Index points out, "a group of middle and lower-income economies perform significantly better on innovation than their level of development would predict", with continual YoY developments coming from the likes of Iran, Mexico, Kenya, Vietnam and Rwanda, to name but a few.

IP World provides the opportunity to network with senior IP professionals from across the Globe, and from global corporates across the high tech, telecoms, software, pharmaceutical, retail, FMCG, online and oil & gas industries. They are looking to enhance their IP portfolios, ensuring that they extract the maximum commercial potential, and will be sharing their specific challenges at the IP World Summit.
