Asia IP Elite

In the lead-up to IPBC Asia, the IAM editorial team identified the Asia IP Elite. Through an extensive research process, the IAM editorial team highlighted 64 companies and research organisations to induct into the 2017 Asia IP Elite. Each entity demonstrated a sustained commitment to building best-in-class in-house IP functions and continuous excellence in IP value creation. 

By recognising these elite organisations, IAM is fostering a community that facilitates the exchange of ideas about IP value creation among the leading companies and IP professionals working across the Asia-Pacific region.

The 2017 Asia IP Elite were honoured at the Gala Dinner held during IPBC Asia at the Palace Hotel on the evening of October 30. 

In addition to the Asia IP Elite, IAM also awarded nine team of the year categories, one deal of the year and one individual of the year award. Selected by IAM���s editorial team, these are the executives and IP departments that merit special recognition for their contributions to their organisations over the course of 2016/17.

Some of the recipients were very active in the IP transactions market, some achieved successful licensing deals and others entering new commercial markets based on IP-driven M&A, but all of them have shown that they use patents as a strategic business assets.

listed below are the award winners for 2017.
