In recent years China has consistently featured as one of the top worldwide filers
of trademark and patent applications, however IP protection and enforcement in
Asia often poses a number of challenges for European companies. The proposed
developments to China’s Patent Law and impending changes to the Trans Pacific
Partnership (TPP) means it is more important than ever to understand and navigate
the changes in Asia’s IP systems in order maximise your portfolios’ value and
remain competitive through robust IP protection.

The programme addresses the major issues at hand and will encourage participation
and debate on all of the pertinent topics and technical matters from the varied
perspectives of a wide range of stakeholders. In addition, Managing IP brings to
the agenda its global expertise so as to offer multinational corporations cutting edge
guidance on handling IP portfolios in a globalised world. The MIP IP in Asia
Forum 2016
brings together world leaders in corporations, industry associations
and leading legal experts to discuss and impart valuable knowledge.

With a close focus on manufacturers, TMT and pharma companies as well as on
general commercialisation of IP in Asia, this forum is tailored-made for those who
want to maximise returns on their IP assets and like to stay well informed about the
world’s fastest growing markets. The MIP IP in Asia Forum 2016 is designed to
educate European in-house counsel doing business in Asia and help to establish
valuable contacts with peers and leading counsel from Asia alike.
