Spring Conference 20018
IP in a global economy
This year’s Spring Conference – IP in a global economy – sees us welcome our most international line-up of speakers ever. With talks on counterfeiting around the globe, to debate about IP internationally, we plan to set the world to rights.
As countries around the world face increasing challenges to enforce IP on the international stage, we are proud to bring together some of the biggest names in the international trade mark community to discuss the issues.
This year’s headlining event sees three industry heavyweights – Grant Lynds (IPIC President), Richard Baddeley (IPTA President) and Shunji Sato (chair of the International Committee of JTA) – talk counterfeiting in their respective jurisdictions. Expect lively debate as they discuss precluding and deterring such activity.
We will also hear from Samantha Foulkes, Richemont International. She’ll give us an overview of the One Belt, One Road Initiative in China, including the anti-counterfeiting issues it raises for Richemont. Plus, we will learn about the anti-counterfeiting enforcement challenges Richemont brands face in Asia beyond.
UKIPO’s criminal division will bring a UK perspective to this year’s conference, enlightening us about high-profile news and seizures of branded counterfeits, and how they collaborate with the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit.
Time: 6pm (day 1)
Location: County Hall, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 7PB
