We’ve seen a lot of changes in the business landscape since COVID-19 hit the country. While most of the country has been under strict shelter-in-place orders, things at present seem to be relaxing. But still companies of every type are being forced to reconsider how to stay connected with colleagues and customers. One of the most obvious casualties are company and industry events.
Because information surrounding COVID-19 has been changing so quickly, many event and marketing teams (including us) are operating at short notice, with the big debate being should we replace the upcoming event with a digital meeting at the last minute, postpone to a later date or simply cancel the event altogether.
There are 2 types of people in the world, those that do and those that don’t. At Cosmonauts we are “do’ers”. There is no better time to show your forward progressive business in a time where business competitors may have been slow to react. That works both for us as event producers and for businesses that are losing out.
This is why we have organised the first Virtual IP event. There has not been a better time for IP and R&D professionals to find other outlets to share knowledge and thought leadership whilst connecting in a meaningful way with their peers. “The Virtual IP Summit then, is one you really can’t afford to miss.”
The first multi-disciplinary intellectual property conference, taking place over the 8th and 9th of July, promises to bring together over 400 attendees and 25+ expert speakers for 2 half days of panel discussions, presentations and virtual networking lounge.
Speakers from a range of industries and IP rich organisations such as Spotify, Twitter, Canon, and BBC to name a few, will discuss some of the most important topics in the world of intangible assets, such as Brand Protection, Licensing, Artificial Intelligence and Innovation.
Head of IP
Project Manager, and Head of the IP Division at Cosmonauts Duvall Carter said: “This is not a webinar, but a fully fledged virtual conference. We researched over 25 platforms as we wanted to focus on having a very engaging and interactive online event to make up for the lack of human contact as much as possible, and we think we’ve done that quite successfully. The funny thing is, we ended up choosing the first one we looked at!”
CEO of Cosmonauts Timo Karakashev said: I couldn’t be more proud of the team here. After amazing growth in 2019, and with the stage set for 2020, we were left in a very difficult situation. Instead of capitulating, we organised The Legal Innovators Online (virtual conference) alongside Artificial Lawyer. We also helped our clients stay relevant and their sales pipelines strong with 10 bespoke webinars in Legal Tech and IP over the past 3 months, with more in planning for new and existing clients.
We have seen the future of business conferences, and without letting anything out the bag, virtual is here to stay.”
