IPBC Europe 2018

European companies are under greater pressure than ever before to maximise the value of the intellectual property they own. This is happening at a time when Brexit and the creation of the Unified Patent Court regime promise some of the most far-reaching changes to the continent’s IP system for many years.

With a long track record of delivering must-have IP value creation information, IAM has created IPBC Europe to focus specifically on the challenges facing IP managers inside European businesses looking to devise and build sustainable strategies for a rapidly changing world.

Taking place in Amsterdam in March 2018, the event will provide IP owners in Europe with tools and insights that will enable them to craft world-class IP management and value creation programmes.

By attending IPBC Europe you will:

  • Hear how Avantium, Barclays, Centrica, Nokia and Philips are building a cost-effective 21st century in-house IP function
  • Receive business-focused overviews of international developments influencing patentability and litigation from Dolby, Nutreco and Telefonica
  • Learn how to leverage your IP portfolio to create value from collaborative deals, licensing and financing with insights from ASML, Ericsson and GE
  • Gain deep insight into Europe’s current IP landscape and identify the key developments that will affect your strategy over the next five years
  • Meet thought leaders from a broad range of industries and different sized organisations including some of the world’s most innovative IP-owning companies and leading experts
