The 35th IP LAW Summit will run live from September 26 to 28, 2021 at a premium location, the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, NV, US.

  • Technology and the IP landscape: what can we expect in the future?
  • How will technology impact the patent space? 
  • How we will work and interact over the next four to five years, and what this means for the way we do business and focus on technology  
  • Structuring your IP portfolio for future trends
