Testimonials

As recent IPBCs have shown – whether held in Lisbon, Beijing, Boston or Singapore – the event’s format works because it brings together the most senior representatives from across the IP industry and the world to discuss corporate IP strategy best practice.

Below are some comments from past participants:

“Attending the IPBC was a worthwhile investment, which cannot always be said about conferences in this field. Not only were the topics and presenters of the highest calibre, but the list of participants was a veritable 'who's who' of the IP business world.”   Horacio E Gutierrez
Corporate vice president and deputy general counsel
Microsoft Corporation

“This was one of the best conferences I have attended.”   Carl Horton
Vice president and chief IP counsel
GE

“It is the most useful of all conferences because it gathers leaders from disparate disciplines who rarely meet, but need to. The IPBC team are sensationally helpful and the entire event is exceptionally well organised.”   Paul R Michel
Chief Judge (retired)
United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit

“You pulled together an exceptional event and it was a pleasure meeting everyone. A number of people told me that this is now likely the top IP event in the world.”   Erin-Michael Gill
Managing director and CIPO
MDB Capital Group

“The IPBC is not one of those mass audience convocations. Rather, it is a real thought-leadership laboratory for identifying value in the ideas that fuel companies, businesses and the world of commerce. This meeting is Davos for the people who invest in and manage the intellectual capital which is at the source of value in business today. Count yourself lucky if you can participate.”   John Olsen
Partner
Edwards Wildman Palmer UK LLP

“The event is one of the best conferences for IP business as a significant part of the IP community attends.”   Ton van Hoef
Vice president and chief IP counsel
ASML

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

“This was one of the best conferences that I have ever attended in any field. Among conferences devoted to intellectual property, it was unique in focusing on the business and strategic issues, and featured many of the world’s leaders in this field as speakers. Congratulations to all who helped for gathering great speakers, choosing an excellent venue and format, and attending to all the details to make it a success.”   Philip Parker
President and Chief Executive Officer
P J Parker & Co

“The IPBC is a unique conference on the business of intellectual property. It's the most useful conference I attend.”   George Hutchinson
General manager
Invention Practica LLC
