Counterfeiting on agenda at trademark conference

The International Trademark Association (INTA) holds its annual conference on February 18–19 in Paris.

“The world is changing fast for brand owners and trademark professionals.

“The Europe conference provide attendees with new perspectives that can alter the narrative of their brands and their trademark teams given the current and future environment,” said INTA chief executive Etienne Sanz de Acedo.

Legal experts

The conference will feature more than 40 speakers from a broad range of industries and experiences, including business and legal experts and government officials. 

Brexit, counterfeiting, and the future of IP are among the topics on the agenda, as well as the rise of online influencers.
