Designs – Into the Future

February 29-March 1 2016 – Singapore

Join the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property and the International Trademark Association for a look into the future of design law and practice. No longer the poor relation of trademarks, patents and copyright, designs have come into their own as a powerful tool in IP protection and enforcement. Meet with and learn from experts in the field, including government representatives and brand owners from around the world. Sessions will cover issues including global protection strategies and hot tips on how best to use the Hague Agreement to designate countries that have recently joined;  exploiting the overlap between design rights and other IP rights; use of design protection to protect and grow businesses; and multi-jurisdictional disputes.

Brands and Sports

March 16 2016 – New York, United States

A brand is more than a slogan or a logo – a brand defines to consumers the essence of a company’s character. The integrity of a brand – and the resulting consumer perception and confidence – is inextricably linked to the value of the brand. Given the global popularity of sports and the widespread media coverage and public scrutiny of sports organisations and athletes, maintaining brand integrity is critical to the success of sports brands. At this advanced-level conference, legal, marketing and communications experts specialising in the business of sports will discuss a variety of topics to inform attendees about proactive measures they can take as stewards of sports brands and how to be nimble in times of crisis.
