The IACC-UL Latin America Regional Brand Protection Summit will take place from October 17 to 19 at the Waldorf Astoria in Orlando, Florida, as WIPR finds out.

The event is co-hosted by the International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition (IACC) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL), in partnership with Interpol.

At this three-day gathering, government officials, businesses, rights owners and law enforcement professionals come together to participate in discussions surrounding the summit’s theme of “Public-Private Cooperation in Enforcement against Counterfeiting and Piracy”.

Attendees have the opportunity to hear from high-level keynote speakers, to participate in thought-leading panels and to learn hands-on from experts in the IP industry from Latin America and worldwide. One of the panels, “The Latin American Landscape”, for example, brings in country experts to discuss anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy advancements in their region.

“Brands, governments, law enforcement and businesses can join forces and share expertise across borders.”

Day one tackles the topic of teamwork in the public sector, where government officials from Latin America will host tables and booths for open networking and knowledge exchange with attendees.

Day two tackles the theme of teamwork in the private sector, with brand representatives hosting tables and booths to offer product identification education and valuable materials to attendees.

The summit concludes with two important panels, “Creative Collaboration: New Opportunities to Maximise Public-Private Cooperation” and “Transnational Trafficking of Fakes Exacerbate Challenges”.

Brands, governments, law enforcement and businesses can join forces and share expertise across borders to end the problem of counterfeiting and piracy at the Latin America Regional Brand Protection Summit.
