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

Widely recognised as the global gathering for the world’s IP business leaders, IPBC Global has hosted over 6,500 senior attendees since it was first held back in 2008. In 2019 IPBC Global returns to Boston from 16 to 18 June following a sell-out event in San Francisco in June 2018.

Why attend IPBC Global?

There’s more than one reason why the leading minds in IP attend IPBC Global year in, year out.

The programme features innovative, fresh and exciting session formats specifically designed to encourage delegate interaction with a world-class speaking faculty specifically tasked to offer deep strategic insights and cutting-edge best practices. Designed with and for IP decision-makers, the programme facilitates discussion around the critical topics keeping corporate leaders awake at night.

In addition to the extensive learning programme, IPBC Global offers unrivalled formal and informal networking opportunities designed in the knowledge that for many attendees, who you meet at an IPBC event is just as important as what you learn.

IPBC Global 2019 offers an unmatched chance to put yourself inside three days of dynamic discussion involving those who make the world’s IP weather. It is the one IP event that senior executives always make sure to attend and that makes it the one event you cannot afford to miss.

IPBC Global has been submitted for approval for CLE hours. Depending on the specific state rules, regulations, and restrictions, the projected CLE credits awarded could be up to 10.5 hours.

Registration and attendance

As has become standard IPBC policy, we operate a sector quota system in order to guarantee a variety of outlooks and experiences among attendees. This will be repeated for Boston in 2019, with quotas for the following:

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

Once we hit a quota limit, we will be unable to offer a place at IPBC Global 2019 to those from the relevant sector looking to register for the event.

While there are no limits on attendees from operating companies, 2018 was a sell-out event and once places are filled, registration will close entirely.

We strongly urge attendees to ensure they reserve their place as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Register your place here.
