Managing IP Asia Awards 2020: winners revealed

mip-asia-awards-2020-600x400px1.png

Find out who won in a host of categories in Australia, China, India and across the Asia-Pacific region

The Managing IP Awards programme recognises remarkable achievements and developments in the past year. The normal format is to publish the shortlist online and then announce the winners at a special ceremony.

Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic meant we were unable to host our Asia-Pacific Awards in person this month, but we still want to reveal all the winners – whose achievements should be recognised even if only virtually.

The reasons for the awards will be published in the autumn edition of our magazine. Our Asia business development manager, Matthew Siu, will also contact the winners to discuss the best ways to showcase their achievements.

Please remember to read this year’s shortlist and our methodology, and contact me if you have any questions.

This concludes the 15th annual Managing IP Awards programme (view the winners from our Americas Awards and EMEA Awards). We will commence the research for the Managing IP Awards 2021 in September 2020.

Congratulations to all the winners this year.
