About

IAM is universally acknowledged as the world’s leading IP business media platform. It was launched as a magazine in July 2003 to address the need for organisations to maximise the value of their intellectual property and other intangibles, and to examine the strategies they can put in place to do this. IAM now produces a wide range of publications, as well as a weekly email and daily blog.

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 established itself as the only IP publication that many senior corporate executives read regularly.

The insight and intelligence IAM provides is topical, timely and continually thought provoking for its subscription-based readership. Editorial quality and integrity are paramount. The quality of the editorial is guaranteed by an in-house team, based in London, Hong Kong and Washington DC, with long-established journalistic track records in the specialist IP and business press, including on titles such as the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times. A number of articles are also commissioned from leading figures in the IP business world.

IAM also publishes a weekly email which has over 27,000 subscribers. It comprises a summary of popular content and jurisdiction-based international reports from leading law firms. The website hosts a fully searchable archive of all articles and supplements published.

IPBC is widely acknowledged as the world’s pre-eminent IP business event and attracts high-level delegates from industry, finance and investment, the law, academia and government, as well as IP intermediaries and aggregators. In 2008 IAM hosted the inaugural IPBC Global in Amsterdam. This was followed by sell-out events in Chicago, Munich, San Francisco, Lisbon, Boston, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Ottawa. IAM hosted its first IPBC Asia in Singapore in 2013, attracting over 450 attendees. This was followed by highly successful IPBC Asia events in Shanghai and Beijing. In addition, IAM holds a series of regional IPBC events, including IPBC Japan, IPBC Australasia, IPBC India, IPBC Southeast Asia, IPBC Korea and IPBC China.

The next IPBC Asia will be held in Tokyo in October 2019, and the next IPBC Global conference will be held in Chicago in June 2020.

IAM also publishes unique industry-leading guides. The IAM Patent 1000 identifies the top patent practitioners in key jurisdictions around the globe, while the IAM Strategy 300 provides a unique listing of the legal professionals generating wealth for their clients from intellectual property.
