IP experts on the life sciences industry in China and Japan are among the attendees at Intellectual Property 2013 on May 29 at the Sheraton Hotel in Tel Aviv. The eight hour seminar is designed for In House IP executives and professionals, general counsels, CFOs, CEOs and their advisers who will hear how key industry players are managing, monetizing and protecting their IP rights. The conference will give participants the opportunity to learn new ideas to apply to their own company. The goal is to present strategies that build a company’s IP portfolio and increase the value it creates for the business and to look at the current and future challenges that IP executives face. Focusing on building IP value and monetization strategies and current options, attendees will have the opportunity to meet colleagues and delve into specific topics of individual interest during luncheon roundtables. The event is being produced by Intellectual Property Resources, an IP consultancy that has provided placement and professional development services for about 20 years. IPR, managed by Kimberly Lindy, is also the founder of the THE IN HOUSE IP MANAGERS and COUNSEL FORUM, which enables Israel and UK IP professionals to meet regularly to discuss common issues, challenges and aspirations, and to enable professional networking.
