Congress Details

Gain insight on what will be required to run a successful IP firm in a changing IP environment.

The following heads of leading IP Offices are expected to participate in the Congress; Mr Benoît Battistelli, President of the EPO; Mr Francis Gurry, Director General of WIPO; Mr António Campinos, President of OHIM; Mr Hitoshi ITO, Commissioner of the JPO; The Commissioner or Deputy Commission of the Korean Intellectual Property Office. Confirmation is expected shortly from the USPTO, the Chinese Patent Office and IP India.

EPO President, Mr Benoit Battistelli and WIPO Director General Mr Francis Gurry will also participate in a plenary session on the most recent developments in the IP5, the Global Dossier and e-PCT.  Developments in these fora will no doubt affect how patent attorneys practice going forward.
