Meeting the Convergence Challenge

In 2017, IPBC Global celebrates its 10th anniversary and will be doing so at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa from June 18 to 20. Not only is the Canadian capital an exciting innovation hub in its own right, but it is also the base from which Canada will be marking its own 150th anniversary – also in 2017.

For senior IP executives, convergence has become a pivotal issue. As innovation and new technology platforms have brought together industries that just a few years ago were very separate, traditional IP management strategies have had to be reinvented and new operational models developed.

The programme for IPBC Global 2017 reflects this changed reality, examining the challenges that convergence poses for the IP community from a multiplicity of angles. Whether it be how to organise a world-class IP function, build a best-in-class portfolio of IP assets, create a fit-for-purpose standards regime or maximise licensing and sales opportunities in this new environment, the unrivalled speaking faculty for IPBC Global 2017 will have it covered.

Throw in a range of exciting and fresh session formats – including Internet of Things and patent sales boot camps, and “How to be Brilliant” masterclasses on in-house IP management and licensing – as well as the unrivalled three days of networking opportunities that IPBC Global always offers, and you can be sure that the world's IP movers and shakers will be in Ottawa next June.

Join them today to ensure you are on the front line of developments in the rapidly changing global IP market – secure your place today by filling in the registration form.

Registration for law firms and IP service providers is now closed. Please email office@judylaneics.com to be placed on the waiting list.
