We were delighted to have two members of our team make the trip to Asia last week, marking our second consecutive year at the IP Business Congress (IPBC) conference. The IPBC is an event hosted by Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) and each year brings together IP experts from all over the world to discuss intellectual property issues affecting the Asia-Pacific region. For us, the three-day event was filled with great discussion and networking, as well as a very impressive lineup of speakers and panels.
Attendee statistics haven’t been released just yet, but last year’s delegate pool was about 55% corporations, 26% law firms/patent agents, and 19% investors, academics and government officials. Senior IP representatives testify to the value of the IPBC’s event roster year after year, as it has become a hub for thought leadership on patents and other IP-related developments.
The conference breakout sessions were well put-together and included regional topics such as: Asia’s IP Future, Building effective IP portfolios, Asia’s elite IP companies, Effective strategic patent acquisition, and more. For a full listing of the programs offered at the conference, check out the IPBC website.

inovia was proud to sponsor the IPBC for the second year and it was truly a pleasure meeting with the many delegates that stopped by our booth. We again found the event to be extremely beneficial and, from our perspective, it seemed that all of the attendees shared in our positive experience. A special congrats to IAM and the many other vendors who helped to coordinate such a successful conference and we look forward to next year!
