MIP International Patent Forum: something for patent litigators too

This blogger thinks it might be a good idea to draw the attention of readers of this blog to the fact that Managing Intellectual Property magazine's International Patent Forum 2015 will take place less than a month away, on 10 and 11 March, in the elegant yet functional surroundings of London's Waldorf Hilton Hotel. In keeping with the traditions of this event, which was first held five years ago, admission is free for in-house corporate and patent counsel, academics and R & D professionals.  If you don't fall within any of these categories but are a reader of the IPKat weblog, you are entitled to the benefit of a £300 discount against the cost of registration.

From the point of view of anyone litigating patents, there are sessions on post-grant and inter partes procedures in the United States and on the new IPR courts in China and Russia, not to mention some cerebral stuff on advanced strategies for litigating patents in the new Europe.

You can see what the IPKat weblog has had to say about this event here, and about some of its speakers here.  The Forum's website, with programme, speaker and registration details, can be accessed here.  Some 200+ folk are expected to attend. This blogger suspects that many will be there because, by pure coincidence no doubt, the Managing IP Global Awards 2015 dinner takes place on the evening of 11 March in the InterContinental Hotel Park Lane.

Disclosure: this blogger is the founding editor of Managing Intellectual Property and is already looking forward to his dinner ...
