"IPBC 2011 was my third such event and since the first, quality of content and logistics have never been lacking. Happily the San Francisco event delivered the best program yet. Looking forward to more wonderfulness in Lisbon..."

"It is the most useful of all conferences because it gathers leaders from disparate disciplines who rarely meet, but need to. The IPBC team are sensationally helpful and the entire event is exceptionally well organised."

"The IP Business Congress is not one of those mass audience convocations. Rather, it is a real thought leadership laboratory for identifying value in the ideas that fuel companies, businesses and the world of commerce. This meeting is Davos for the people who invest in and manage the intellectual capital which is at the source of value in business today. Count yourself lucky if you can participate."

"This was one of the best conferences that I have ever attended in any field. Among conferences devoted to intellectual property, it was unique in focusing on the business and strategic issues, and featured many of the world’s leaders in this field as speakers. Congratulations to all who helped for gathering great speakers, choosing an excellent venue and format, and attending to all the details to make it a success."
