Meeting the Convergence Challenge

The overview 

The pre-eminent gathering of the world’s top IP business leaders – IPBC Global – will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in Ottawa from June 18 to 20 2017 at the Shaw Centre.

Since the first IPBC Global in Amsterdam in 2008, the event has established itself as the place where IP business leaders gather each year to discuss the cutting-edge issues that affect IP value creation strategies. Under the banner “Meeting the convergence challenge”, it will be no different in 2017.

IPBC Global’s 2017 programme will explore how technology convergence has transformed the way in which companies across a wide range of industries do business and the challenges this poses for their IP value creation strategies.       

What’s more, the event will also focus on key policy developments in Europe and North America, and hone in on the views of influential C-suite executives with keynote presentations from the CEO and CTO of prominent, cutting-edge businesses. And if all that were not enough, we’ll be asking a team of global IP market leaders to predict how things will look in 2020 and explain what you should be doing now to prepare accordingly.

To ensure this will be like no previous IPBC Global, we have introduced a range of fresh and exciting new session formats, including:

  • Internet of Things and patent sales boot camps
  • “How to be Brilliant” masterclasses on in-house IP management and licensing
  • Practical knowledge workshops

IPBC Global 2017 will offer unparalelled opportunities to discuss cutting-edge issues and network with senior decision makers who make the global IP weather. We look forward to welcoming you to Ottawa in June next year!

Sector quotas

The last IPBC Global took place in Barcelona in June 2016 and attracted a sell-out crowd of over 550 attendees. It has become standard IPBC policy to operate a sector quota system in order to maintain a balanced delegate base with a strong representation from corporates. We have once again introduced strict quotas for the following:

  • Intermediaries and investors
  • NPEs and aggregators
  • Policy makers and academics
  • Private practice lawyers, patent and trademark attorneys
  • Other service providers

No limit is imposed on attendees from operating companies.

Once the quota limits have been reached, we will be unable to offer a place at IPBC Global 2017 to those from the relevant sector looking to register for the event. Demand for places is high; thus, anyone wishing to attend is strongly advised to register as early as possible.

Book your place here.

The host

IAM is universally acknowledged as the world’s leading IP business media platform. It was launched as a magazine in July 2003 to address the need for organisations to maximise the value of their intellectual property and other intangibles, and to examine the strategies they can put in place to do this. IAM now produces a wide range of publications, as well as a weekly email and daily blog.

IAM is unique because it treats intellectual property as a business asset and tool, rather than simply as a legal right. With this unequalled appeal to the boardroom, IAM has established itself as the only IP publication that many senior corporate executives read regularly.

Using our world-class corporate, financial, intermediary and legal contacts, a high-level faculty of speakers is once again being assembled for IPBC Global 2017. It will comprise individuals in charge of intellectual property at some of the world’s most forward-thinking companies, both large and small; investors; senior aggregators; policy makers; legal experts; and intermediaries. Their unique insights and experiences, presented in both our plenary and breakout sessions, will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the principles that lie behind the development of IP value creation strategies, as well as the many challenges – actual and future – that IP-owning companies face.
