The Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) Annual Meeting offers a mix of educational programs, committee meetings, networking opportunities and exhibits. Parallel sessions on patent and trademark/copyright topics are offered throughout the meeting, including an ethics presentation. Session descriptions, speakers, committee activities, networking functions, hotel information, meeting sponsors, and exhibitors will be available on IPO's website.
For many, it seems we are living in an era where everything feels different from what was the norm just a few years ago. The same is happening in the realm of IP, whether one is seeking to develop and exploit IP or one is providing services in this sector. The 2018 AIPF Annual Meeting builds on the Association's long-standing practice of providing attendees with information and insights that will help attendees navigate an IP world where "everything feels different."
AIPF is also proud to partner with LegalShift to present our Boutique Practice Session entitled, “Legal Project Management Essentials: Learn How to Align Client Expectations with Practice Efficiencies and Profitability.” This innovative and interactive workshop will address Legal Project Management (LPM) concepts, the practical applications of these concepts, and how to apply LPM "best practices" in the operation of an IP boutique.
