Kimberly Lindy of IPR is organizing a conference at the end of May that is entitled “Best Practices in IP 2013 – INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES ON CREATING AND EXTRACTING VALUE”.
The event, designed for In House IP Professionals, General Counsels, CFOs and CEOs and their advisers, offers an opportunity to discover how key industry players are building, managing, monetizing and protecting their IP rights.
The conference will enable participants to learn new ideas that they can then apply to their own company. The goal is to teach strategies that build and safeguard a company’s IP portfolio and increase the value it creates for the business. Participants will hear how their peers in International companies arrange budgets for IP investment, and how to value their portfolios. Ideas on monetization will be discussed, as will how to benchmark external providers to ensure that companies receive the most value for money.
The conference will focus on monetization strategies and portfolio management. Plenums with geographical focus are planned so that attendees can tailor their agendas by selecting sessions. The quality lunch will be an opportunity for round-table discussions, and there will also be time for one-on-one business meetings with a choice of solution providers.
