Something to trumpet about: good news if you're heading for the IP Strategy Forum

Free registration for in-house IP
folk: something
to trumpet about
Readers of this weblog will by now be well aware that Managing Intellectual Property journal (MIP) has launched its inaugural IP Strategy Forum, to be held in the historical and quite lovely surroundings of London's County Hall, on 26 April 2017.  We have also trumpeted the happy fact that the World Intellectual Property Organization -- the UN agency responsible for promoting IP globally and administering its international filing systems -- has designated precisely that day as World Intellectual Property Day 2017 [the WIPO World IP Day website, here, has some background information about this year's event, which is on the theme of "Innovation -- Improving Lives"].

Today's good news is that MIP has kindly agreed to register IP and R&D professionals within companies for free.

County Hall
This year's IP Strategy Forum is being held in conjunction with Aistemos.  Apart from the benefits of participating in the Forum itself, there's an additional bonus in that the results of last year's Aistemos IP Strategy in the Boardroom survey will be released in the form of the Aistemos IP Strategy Report. Why not join us and MIP on 26 April? We can celebrate the day together and spend a bit of time reflecting thoughtfully on the potential of the IP system to save lives and to enhance their quality, as well delivering benefits to those who create, develop and market them? We can tweet our ideas and comments using the pre-designated hashtag #worldipday.

A strong panel of speakers and participants will be on hand, so you can test out your own views of IP strategy against people who have dedicated their professional lives to developing, shaping and modifying strategies of their own in an ever-changing world in which last year's IP best practice can so easily end up being shunted into next year's dead-end. 

Qualcomm, BAE, Philips, IBM, Nissan and Deutsche Bank are among the leading IP-sensitive businesses whose experiences and ideas will be up for discussion.  Do attend and join them in discussion if you can!
