Maximising corporate IP value in Australasia

Following the phenomenal success of the first Intellectual Property Business Congress (IPBC) Australasia in November 2016, IAM was delighted to return to the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins on November 30 2017.

Built on IAM’s extensive relationships within the New Zealand and Australian IP communities, IPBC Australasia was specifically designed for senior IP executives at the region’s leading corporates, research institutions and governmental agencies, plus emerging companies from across the industry spectrum.

The IPBC Australasia programme took the core themes of IP value creation and strategic corporate IP best practice and discussed them from both the New Zealand and Australian standpoint, with particular attention to innovation-based growth and international expansion strategies.

With over 160 delegates from leading domestic companies, international corporations, research institutions and government bodies in attendance, the 2017 event was a huge success.
