The global gathering for the world’s IP business leaders returns to San Francisco

IPBC Global is not to be missed

Don’t just take our word for it…

“It is, I believe, the best conference for IP strategy anywhere.” Kurt Brasch, head of patent transactions, Uber

“These conferences are clearly top-shelf IP forums and I plan to attend as many as I am able to.” Joseph M Sommer, vice president, IP, AT&T Inc

“The IPBC attracts many people who are active in diverse roles within small and large organisations, and who drive a new creative business thinking around IP.” Edith Hermans, group director IP, Tessenderlo Group

“The conference is excellent for improving the way we work and seeing what is important for the future of intellectual property.” Guillaume Menage, vice president, licensing and IP counsel, France Brevets

“IPBC is the best conference on intellectual property; it’s a great place to meet all types of people involved in IP rights.” Béatrix de Russé, president, BAIP

IPBC Global is the one IP event that senior executives always make sure to attend - you cannot afford to miss it.
