IPBC Shenzhen

Shenzhen - China

Maximising IP value in Shenzhen

Following the huge success of IAM’s China-focused IPBC events over the past five years, we are pleased to announce that IPBC Shenzhen will be held on April 20 2018. As China’s powerhouse for industrial, R&D and commercial activity, the sheer concentration of leading IP-owning companies makes Shenzhen the perfect location for IAM’s dedicated China event in 2018. 

Through a packed, fully bilingual, one-day programme, IPBC Shenzhen will tackle the IP policy developments, market trends and commercial pressures affecting both Chinese enterprises expanding their operations overseas and international corporations expanding their businesses in China.




IPBC Korea

Seoul - South Korea

Corporate IP best practice in Korea

Korea’s position within the IP5 and the important status of many of its corporate giants within the global supply chain make it a fascinating, yet challenging, IP market. Korean companies and research institutions face numerous challenges to protect, maximise and monetise their IP assets, with new threats and opportunities emerging each year.

It is against this background that IAM's is pleased to announce that the third annual IPBC Korea will be held at the JW Marriot Dongdaemun Square, Seoul on April 26 2018.
