The conference will feature world-renowned experts on patent information for technology research and planning, for legal organizations, and for overall corporate IP management (technology licensing and related activities). The conference will include many opportunities for discussion and part of Tuesday afternoon will be dedicated to visiting the exhibit hall. Many workshops will also be held in conjunction with this meeting (before, during and after the technical sessions).
Attendees typically have a professional, scientific, or technical interest in patents and represent a multitude of companies. Previous meetings in Baltimore, Maryland, and Cincinnati, Ohio, drew enthusiastic groups of over 330 and 350 people, respectively, to the three-day technical sessions. Nearly one-fifth of the attendees were international; that is, attendees came from Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, the Russian Federation, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. We expect about 400 attendees in 2012.
Join us for a great conference in the Mile High City, Denver Colorado, USA.
