The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) working with the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office are pleased to offer this valuable educational program.

Senior representatives from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) will lead an interactive program of discussions that are sure to be of interest to anyone involved in the international protection of IP rights. The event will provide an introduction to WIPO services and initiatives, including international systems for the protection of IP rights, alternative dispute resolution, and infrastructure for the exchange of IP information. There will be plenty of opportunity for debate and discussion, as well as interaction with the US Patent and Trademark Office, and local business representatives. A full agenda will be available soon.
