IPBC Europe 2023 is heading to Paris with a stellar speaker line-up

IPBC Europe 2023 is heading to the heart of Paris between 27 and 29 March, armed with a cutting-edge agenda and roster of industry leaders. Hosted by IAM, the event will delve into the European IP landscape and the key factors driving patent protection and monetisation strategies.

Taking place in the elegant surroundings of The Westin Paris – Vendôme, attendees will hear a keynote speech by Senior Vice President, Innovation Research at Orange, Jean Bolot, plus insights from a wide range of corporates including Dolby, Meta, Avanci, Ericsson, Sisvel, IBM and many more.

Our speakers will tackle a range of issues that are at the vanguard of the IP industry. In the face of increasing economic headwinds, learn how to make your CFO love patents via effective communication techniques, best approaches to ROI calculations and how to integrate business and patent strategies.

We’ll be putting the Unified Patent Court under the microscope, examining the key developments you should be watching out for in year one and the impact of the unitary patent in a plenary session. We will also be hosting a masterclass on avoiding UPC disasters.

Trade secrets in an age of technological revolution, increasing patent revenue in new markets and Europe’s litigation finance landscape are among the other topics on our packed agenda.
