Asia IP Elite

In the lead-up to IPBC Asia, the IAM editorial team has identified the Asia IP Elite. Through an extensive research process, the IAM editorial team has highlighted 64 companies and research organisations as inductees into the 2017 Asia IP Elite. Each entity has 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 will be honoured at the Gala Dinner being held during IPBC Asia at the Palace Hotel on the evening of October 30. 

In addition to the Asia IP Elite, IAM will also award 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 will have been very active in the IP transactions market, some achieving successful licensing deals and other entering new commercial markets based on IP-driven M&A, but all of them will have showed that they use patents are a strategic business assets.

The award winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner and full details will be released on October 31.
