IPBC Connect returns to Zoom for a week of high-level discussions involving the world’s leading IP experts.

From 22-26 March, IAM will be hosting more than 20 individual interactive digital sessions, each designed to facilitate the exchange of information and insight, benchmarking and the sharing of the best practice in key areas of strategic IP value creation.

Each day will start with a keynote address from a major industry figure followed by live breakout discussions lasting for a maximum of 60 minutes. These will be in a variety of formats, including masterclasses, open discussions forums, solution rooms and closed-door, invite-only boardrooms.

You can register for as many sessions as you like across the week, building your own schedule.
