The economic going continues to be tough. At times such as these, businesses need to focus on core assets and squeezing as much from them as possible. Over recent years, IP has emerged as one such asset and, as a result, monetisation, deal-making, financings and other forms of IP value creation are on the rise. Now the onus is on company boards, in-house IP functions and investors to keep on delivering results.
In 2013, under the banner of “IP in hard times”, the IP Business Congress (IPBC) will bring together the world’s leading corporate IP decision makers alongside investors, NPEs, aggregators and other intermediaries. They will discuss the opportunities and challenges facing IP leaders as they seek to build a global marketplace against the backdrop of difficult trading conditions and tightening budgets.
With a focus on learning from and interacting with those on the cutting edge of IP value creation, and a greater emphasis than ever before on the exchange of ideas and experiences, the IP Business Congress 2013 will, once again, be the must-attend event for anyone looking to meet and learn from those who are creating the 21st century’s IP economy.
The sixth IPBC is taking pace at The Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston from 9th to 11th June.
Since it began in Amsterdam in 2008, the IPBC has established itself as the world’s principal forum for senior thought leaders who specialise in the business of IP to come together to discuss cutting-edge issues around IP value creation. With IP continuing to move further up the corporate and investment agenda, this focus is more relevant than ever before. As a major banking and venture capital centre and a significant IP hub, Boston is the ideal city to play host to the 2013 event.
Previous IPBCs in Amsterdam (2008), Chicago (2009), Munich (2010) San Francisco (2011) and Cascais (2012) have clearly demonstrated that the IPBC is an IP event like no other – one which brings together high-level attendees and speakers from operating companies and NPEs, investment, policy and the law to discuss the cutting-edge issues in IP and intellectual capital value creation. As in previous years, the IPBC 2013 in Boston will attract high-level delegates from around the world.
