The pre-eminent gathering of the world’s IP leaders

IAM’s premier gathering for IP business leaders – IPBC Global 2018 – will enter its second decade on June 10 to 12 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

In 2017 IAM introduced a range of fresh new session formats that facilitated discussion around critical topics – and this year promises to be even better! There is a lot to look forward to in 2018 – keynote addresses, topical debates, deep-dive industry focuses, masterclasses and boot camps, including:

  • CIPO scenarios: Corporate IP leaders discuss to handle the kind of business critical challenges that land on the desk of the 21st century chief IP officer
  • Win-win deal-making: Understand how collaborative licensing programmes are changing, what’s on offer and how to get the best deal
  • The Patent Trial and Appeal Board: Gain patent owner perspectives on how to be successful before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board
  • Debates: Are antitrust laws in standard-essential patent licensing too intrusive? Is patent quality a distraction?
  • Masterclasses: The dos and don’ts of deal making in China, partnering with universities and other research institutions
  • Big data: Assess how best to use data to maximise IP value creation
  • Meet the buyers: Who is buying patents, what are they looking for and how do they buy?
  • Industry focus: Review the IP landscape, the challenges and the trends in the semiconductor and artificial intelligence spaces

As always, IPBC Global will present an unmatched opportunity to network with industry leaders and put yourself at the heart of discussions involving those who make the world’s IP weather.

This is the one IP event that senior executives always make sure to attend and the one you cannot afford to miss.

Please note:

IAM operates a strict quota system for IP service providers and private practice lawyers to ensure a diverse audience mix. With quotas filling up fast, make sure you guarantee your place before the quota limit is reached.
