You may have heard… but the Dublin IP and R&D Summit (DIPS) is back!

Now in its third edition, this conference brings everything intellectual property (IP) together in one innovative, two-day event. From AI to biotech to gaming, IP covers a massive range of sectors, and we seek to bring that wide array of possibilities to the event, which hosts CEOs, inventors, legal counsels, and anyone else with a stake in IP. 

Whether you’re looking to exhibit on the floor straight to a curated group of potential connections, speak on a diverse panel, or just attend and learn, we have something for you! Keep reading to find out more about what we have planned. 

The Conference

On June 29th, a full-day IP and R&D conference packed with discussion, debate, idea-sharing, and innovation will take place – think panels, standalone sessions, and intimate roundtables (a team favourite)!

If there’s an issue in IP, we’re covering it. ‘Can We Be FRANDs?’ is one of our thought-provoking panel sessions and takes a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly of IoT patent tools. ‘Outsource Your IP’, which hosts Binarii Labs’ CEO Aidan Finn and Zyte’s Chief Legal & People Officer Sanaea Daruwalla among other industry leaders, discusses the key things to consider when contemplating outsourcing IP management. Each panel is a unique session designed to engage both the speakers onstage and the audience in innovative conversation. 

We have some smaller sessions, too! Several knowledgeable representatives of major companies have already booked their spotlights. Look out for standalone presentations from Minesoft, a global provider of information solutions; HGF, one of Europe’s leading IP firms; and Bureau van Dijk, the specialists in business data. 

And at the end of the day, roundtables are returning! These slots are the perfect opportunity to ask key figures from across intellectual property questions and get to know their standpoint on certain topics – from women in STEM to AI to bran protection, this is a unique, intimate, and exciting session. (They’re a team-favourite for a reason!)

Networking Opportunities

Looking to network? We’ve got you covered! Our exhibiting space will be active throughout the event, operating as a hub for professionals to network and share their experience in IP. We’ll have dedicated breaks throughout the conference that not only allow you to stretch your legs and grab a snack, but get to know the like-minded individuals around you! Make connections with the figureheads of major businesses spearheading IP, experienced legal professionals, or even representatives of government entities. Our intellectual property events are special because everyone in attendance is curated – we put the right people in the same place. 

No matter how you’re looking to grow in IP, be it finding new potential customers or a service provider, this is the event for you!

Why Else Should You Be a Part of the DIPS Experience?

This conference has previously partnered with many IP, legal, and technology leaders from around the world, including Enterprise Ireland, the government body responsible for innovation in the region. They have a strong membership of IP owners (over 3,500 members), which includes start-ups, SMEs, and corporations. The Summit has been sponsored by many more amazing companies revolutionising intellectual property, like Definition IP, Evalueserve, and Sun IP.

Our conference offers unique insight into the latest happenings, trends, and future prospects of IP, hosting an array of experienced speakers – but you’ll also have the chance to network with those speakers and other like-minded individuals, making the conference an unparalleled opportunity to make a splash or expand your network in IP.

Last year, we hosted more than 150 attendees and over 20 different speakers. This year, for the third edition of the Summit, we’re pulling out all of the stops – expect a diverse conference with many reputable sponsors, knowledgeable speakers, and a perfectly-curated audience, all under one roof to explore intellectual property!

Don’t just take our word for how fun it was, though – hear what a few of our speakers had to say about the event!

Getting involved with this one-of-a-kind event could be the perfect fit for you and your company. Whether you’d like to join the stage and discuss pressing issues in IP, take the spotlight and demonstrate your product, or sponsor our epic drinks reception, sponsorship is an amazing way to expand your brand and make lasting, worthwhile connections. 

The Dublin IP and R&D Summit 3.0 promises to be another great look into the world of IP and spark innovation amongst those leading the future. Don’t miss out!
