IPBC Global 2016 will take place at the Hotel Arts in Barcelona from June 5 to 7. Recently named the world’s “Most Wired City” and the home of the GSMA Mobile World Congress, Barcelona is one of Europe’s top technology hubs and an ideal location for the ninth IPBC Global – the world’s leading event focusing on the business of IP value creation.
Devised for an audience of senior IP business leaders, the programme for IPBC Global 2016 reflects the challenges posed by a rapidly evolving global IP market. Not only are developments in Europe and Asia creating a more international ecosystem, but assertion-based monetisation programmes are becoming harder to implement in the United States. However, as traditional strategies become less attractive, newer and more collaborative business models are gaining traction, while emerging sectors and priorities demand ever-closer attention to the full range of IP rights.
With a speaking faculty composed of thought leaders operating in all parts of the market, IPBC Global 2016 will use its plenary and breakout sessions to explore emerging trends and to identify the major challenges facing IP owners and their advisers, as well as suggesting solutions. The full preliminary programme can be viewed here.
The event programme, alongside a host of formal and informal networking opportunities, will ensure that IPBC Global 2016 is a conference that meets the needs of a high-level delegate base – one that understands that intellectual property is a pivotal 21st century business asset.
During 2016 there will be no better place to discuss cutting-edge issues and network with the people who make the world’s IP weather than the Hotel Arts, Barcelona, from June 5 to 7. We look forward to seeing you there.
