Global demand for intellectual property tools shows no sign of abating, with increased prominence from Asian markets, notably China, Japan and Korea, with internal innovators and foreign entities seeking to protect and promote their work the world over. However, it’s not just the more established players making waves nowadays. As WIPO’s Global Innovation Index points out, “a group of middle and lower-income economies perform significantly better on innovation than their level of development would predict”, with continual YoY developments coming from the likes of Iran, Mexico, Kenya, Vietnam and Rwanda, to name but a few.
IP World provides the opportunity to network with senior IP professionals from across the Globe, and from global corporates across the high tech, telecoms, software, pharmaceutical, retail, FMCG, online and oil & gas industries.
