After a year of absence caused by covid, plans to hold Global IPBC as a physical event in 2021 are now booming. The convention will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Seattle from 14e to 16e November and will once again bring together global IP business leaders with a selection of cutting-edge sessions, as well as unprecedented networking opportunities.
By working with a dedicated team of highly respected intellectual property decision makers, I AM completely reworked the scope and form of the program of the event to ensure it focuses on the issues that really matter and to allow for more in-depth discussions on key topics. Many thanks to the members of our Advisory Board for all their suggestions and comments:

Among the particularities of IPBC 2021:
- IPBC round tables and think tanks: Pre-register for informal interactive small group networking discussions allowing for the exchange of ideas, best practices and experiences in a number of areas.
- Focus on networking: After an 18-month gap, We are expanding networking opportunities to give delegates more time to reconnect with old contacts in person and to make new ones.
- Lessons on the Intellectual Property Leadership Forum: Heard from I AMMarket makers, Intellectual Property Hall of Fame inductees and Academy members on how they built their careers and learned to lead teams to success, and the lessons they learned from the pandemic of covid-19, the future of IP value creation and the recruitment and retention of top talent.
- 1-2-1 business back-up networking: Go deeper into the conversation with key people in IP, book 1-2-1 meetings in the IPBC Business Booster lounge.
IPBC Global will adopt the All Secure standard so that participants can do business efficiently and network with their peers securely.
The All Secure standard was developed collaboratively by a group comprising industry associations, UFO, AEO and SISO, event planners, a range of event venues, suppliers and with input from health, government and local authorities. .
Registration to IPBC Global is risk-free – If the event does not take place, the registration fee will be fully refundable.
As in previous years, a strict quota system is in place, with attendance limits applying to people working in certain categories of organizations. The limit of IP service providers has already been reached, but there are still places left for lawyers and lawyers in private practice, as well as for NPE executives. There is no quota for intellectual property professionals in business.
