About

IPBC Japan was held at the Hotel Okura in Tokyo on September 4 2014.

IPBC Japan took the core themes of IP value creation and strategic corporate IP management and discussed these in a Japanese context. The central theme of the event was that intellectual property is a lot more than a legal right; in fact, it is a fundamental business asset that can help to build revenues and increase profits - not only through licensing and other forms of monetisation, but also by enabling collaborations, underpinning open innovation platforms, inspiring M&As, providing access to finance and driving broader corporate strategies.

With contributions from some of the foremost IP thought leaders from the United States and Europe alongside Japan’s leading experts, and case studies presented by those working at the cutting edge of IP value creation, IPBC Japan offered attendees an invaluable chance to gain insights about global best practices. Additionally, to ensure the maximum benefit for attendees, the IPBC Japan programme included insights from prominent regulatory, academic and judicial figures.

Background
Since it was launched in 2008, the IPBC has established itself as the world’s principal forum for discussion of the issues surrounding IP value creation. As recent events have shown – whether held in Lisbon, Beijing, Boston, Singapore, Amsterdam or Tokyo – the format works because it brings together the most senior representatives from across the IP industry and the world, not just to discuss IP business, but also to do deals.

The host
Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) is universally acknowledged as the world’s leading IP business publication. It was launched 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 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.
