About

Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) hosted the second IPBC Asia from December 7-9 2014 at the five-star Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Pudong, Shanghai.

IPBC Asia is the only event in the Asia-Pacific region to focus on how rights owners can strategically use intellectual property to secure greater operational flexibility, drive revenues, enhance bottom-line returns, increase shareholder value and provide greater leverage in the financial markets.

The event comprises three days of high-level discussion and unparalleled networking opportunities, bringing together senior thought leaders from Asia, Europe and North America.

Sessions at IPBC Asia 2014 explored cutting-edge issues in value creation, while the speaking faculty included chief IP officers and heads of intellectual property from major IP-owning companies, plus key members of the global IP commercialisation and monetisation communities.

IPBC Asia 2015 will be held at the Palace Hotel, Tokyo from November 8 to 10. For more information please contact The IP Media Group’s Asia-Pacific business development director, Dan Cole, on +852 5665 5774 or at dcole@theipmediagroup.com.

Background

Since it was launched in Amsterdam in 2008, the IPBC series of events has established itself as the world’s principal forum for discussion of the issues surrounding IP value creation. As recent events have shown – whether held in Lisbon, Boston, Singapore or Shanghai – the format works because it brings together the most senior representatives from across the IP industry and the world, not just to network, learn and discuss IP business, but also to do deals.

Host

IAM is universally acknowledged as the world’s leading IP business information provider. IAM was launched in July 2003 to address the need for organisations to maximise the value of their intellectual property and other intangibles, and to examine the strategies that they can put in place to do this. IAM is unique because it treats intellectual property as a business asset and tool, rather than simply as a legal right. With this unequalled appeal to the boardroom, IAM has firmly established itself as the only IP publication that many senior corporate executives read regularly.

Using our world-class corporate, financial, intermediary and legal contacts, we were able to assemble a world-class faculty of speakers for IPBC Asia 2014 [link to speaker page – asia 2014], comprising individuals in charge of intellectual property at some of the world’s most forward-thinking companies – both large and small, Asian and international – as well as global IP thought leaders, intermediaries and senior members of the IP finance and investment communities. Their unique insights and experiences, presented in both plenary and breakout sessions, provided delegates with a thorough understanding of the principles that underpin the development of IP value creation strategies, as well as the many challenges – actual and future – that IP-owning companies face.

Delegates

IPBC Asia is focused on two key groups: chief IP officers, heads of intellectual property and their equivalents at major enterprises; and leading IP investors, aggregators and intermediaries.

To guarantee a variety of outlooks and experiences, we apply sector quotas for:

  • Representatives from IP-owning entities
  • Intermediaries and investors
  • Policy makers and academics
  • Private practice lawyers, patent and trademark attorneys and legal services providers

Once we hit a quota limit, we are unable to offer a place at IPBC Asia to those from the relevant sector looking to register for the event. This ensures the optimal balance of sector participants.

Asia IP Elite and Gala Dinner

Asia has become an undisputed global innovation hub. From emerging domestic enterprises to established household names, Asian companies are taking centre stage as the balance of economic power shifts eastwards. As they stake their claims in the global marketplace, ensuring that they have the necessary expertise to create, manage, commercialise and drive strategic value from their intellectual property is vital to their continued success.

In 2014 the IAM editorial team again conducted research to identify the Asia IP Elite: those companies, research organisations and other entities from the Asia-Pacific region that consistently put intellectual property at the very heart of their decision making and, as a result, substantially enhance their overall business strategies. The 54 nominees were recognised during the Asia IP Elite Gala Dinner held at IPBC Asia on December 8 2014.
