China IP Road Shows

China IP Road Show

With the China IP Road Shows, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is partnering with a variety of organizations across the country — including universities, USPTO regional offices, business groups, state and local governments, and other federal agencies — to present a series of one-day events that delve into the details of how to better protect intellectual property (IP) in China. These one-day events bring to local businesses and stakeholders the expertise and knowledge of the USPTO’s China specialists as well as that of special invited guests, and have been tailored to address the needs of the specific locales in which they are held. They will be especially valuable for small and medium-sized businesses and new-to-market exporters.

The China IP Road Show events are free and open to the public. Listed below is information on upcoming and past road shows.
