“Virtually connecting the worlds of Business and IP” – the first ever live and interactive IP summit – 8th to 9th July 2020, hosted by conference Chair, Chris Donegan of Invention Capital Associates.

New dates, even more excitement building! The response from delegates has been immense, with over 300 registered participants up until the end of last week. In saying this, due to market forces, our sponsors need more time, so we decided to move the event from the original June dates to the current dates in July.

We have been very lucky that all our speakers and sponsors so far have supported the postponement, with the promise of an even bigger and better event with more time to plan and deliver the first ever Virtual IP Summit, as we have to make this first one a blast! 

A big thank you to our Chair, and all our Speakers and Sponsors for their continued support.

From our Chair, Chris Donegan, Invention Capital Associates – 

“Knowing how to ask the right question is often the difference between success and failure. Moreover the culture and capability to ask the right question and contextualise it is rare and difficult to acquire. I call this organisational IP (or OIP for short).

We will examine phenomena that are catalysed by our current extraordinary circumstances and by the coming of age of certain innovations. As participants our ability to extract value from the discussions will derive from being able to generalise and apply the insights we gather contextually to our own situations and business challenges. In essence by using our own OIP.”

Join subject matter experts as they take part in 4 hot topic panel discussions, plus standalone presentations, Q&A sessions, product demonstrations and virtual networking.

8th July 2020 – 15:30 – 18:30 BST

15:35 – 16:25 – “We protect our own”-  Building and protecting your brand. The key elements of brand protection.
