IPBC Latin America 2019

Background to IPBC

Since it was launched in Amsterdam in 2008, IPBC has become established as the world’s principal forum for senior thought leaders who specialise in the business of intellectual property, giving them a place to come together and discuss cutting-edge issues around IP value creation. With intellectual property continuing to move further up the corporate, investment and policy agendas, this focus is more relevant than ever before.

Previous IPBC Global events in Amsterdam (2008 and 2014), Chicago (2009), Munich (2010), San Francisco (2011, 2015 and 2018), Cascais (2012), Boston (2013), Barcelona (2016) and Ottowa (2017), as well as IPBC China in Beijing (2012, 2015 and 2017), IPBC Asia in Singapore (2013), Tokyo (2015), Shanghai (2014 and 2016) and IPBC Japan in Tokyo (2014 and 2016), IPBC Korea in (2016 and 2017),IPBC Taiwan in Taipei (2016) IPBC India (2017) and IPBC Southeast Asia (2017) have clearly demonstrated that the event is unique in the IP calendar.

The opportunities that the IPBC format affords for the exchange of views and experiences – both in formal sessions and during breakfast, lunch and networking breaks – are unparalleled, and are why IPBC events attract such high-level attendees and speakers.

People attend IPBC events because they are unique in four important ways:

  • They focus solely on intellectual property as a business asset and how best it can be managed to extract maximum value.
  • IAM is exceptionally placed to assemble an outstanding set of speakers and delegates – from both domestic and international markets – who bring experience, knowledge and insight to the issues that truly matter to senior IP decision makers.
  • Limited delegate numbers, strictly enforced occupation quotas and carefully designed sessions mean that the events uniquely combine world-class IP business expertise with outstanding networking opportunities in an intimate and informal atmosphere.
  • The IPBC format works because it brings together the most senior representatives from across the IP industry not just to discuss IP business, but also to do deals

The Hosts 

IAM is universally acknowledged as the world’s leading IP business information provider. It was launched in July 2003 to address the ways in which businesses and other entities can maximise the value of their intellectual property and other intangibles, and to examine the strategies that they can employ to do this. IAM is unique because it treats intellectual property as a business asset and tool, rather than simply as a legal right. With this unequalled appeal to the boardroom, IAM has firmly established itself as the only IP publication that many senior corporate executives read regularly.


World Trademark Review is a bi-monthly, practitioner-led publication which focuses on the issues that matter to trademark professionals the world over. In each issue the experienced editorial team and extensive panel of correspondents provide in-depth coverage of national and regional tends, profile the world's major trademark offices (including how they function and handle important registration issues), and conduct interviews with leading trademark personalities.
