About IPBC Japan

Being held at the Hotel Okura in Tokyo on September 8 2016, IPBC Japan is designed specifically for the Japanese corporate IP community and structured around four key plenary sessions.

IPBC Japan’s programme will have a particular emphasis on the key international trends and developments, offering unparalleled networking opportunities for senior corporate IP professionals from local and international companies.

Dedicated and content-led sessions will provide delegates with the best-practice advice and invaluable insight into the emerging opportunities, addressing global challenges and identifying pitfalls that they face today.

Comprised of thought leaders from domestic and international market-leading companies, including members of investment, regulatory and judicial community, this year’s expert speaking faculty will discuss fundamentals of IP value creation and strategic IP management in the Japanese context.

Delegate profile

IPBC Japan 2014 was a huge success, with over 200 delegates from leading Japanese and international corporations, academia and government in attendance. The 2016 event will build on this unique gathering.

As an invitation-based event, IPBC Japan’s audience will be focused on two key groups: chief IP officers, heads of intellectual property or their equivalents at major Japanese enterprises; and their counterparts at major multinationals.

Alongside these corporate attendees will be a small, select group of leading executives from the broader IP value creation community including IP investors, intermediaries, regulators and service providers.

To guarantee a variety of outlooks and experiences, we will employ strict sector quotas for Intermediaries, private practice lawyers/attorneys and service provider representatives. Once we hit a quota limit, we are unable to offer a place at IPBC Japan to those from the relevant sector seeking to register for the event. This ensures the event remains focused on our key attendees – senior executives at Japanese operating companies.

Anyone wishing to attend is strongly advised to secure a place as early as possible.

Background

Since it was launched in Amsterdam in 2008, 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 Beijing, San Francisco, Barcelona 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.

Host

IAM is universally acknowledged as the world’s leading IP business information provider. It was launched in July 2003 to address the ways in which businesses and other entities can maximise the value of their intellectual property and other intangibles, and to examine the strategies that they can employ 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 firmly established itself as the only IP publication that many senior corporate executives read regularly.
