Head of Asia-Pacific IP licensing
IBM

“IPBC Asia has provided a great opportunity for Google to introduce some of our licensing initiatives. It attracts a great cross-section of companies… It’s great to see a lot of colleagues who would otherwise be hard to visit in Asia – to see them all in one place at the IPBC is fantastic.”   Kirk Dailey
Head of patent transactions
Google

“This conference provides an amazing opportunity for networking.”   Xinming Wan
Chief engineer of open innovation centre, R&D

“IPBC Asia is a premium place for business people in the IP field to congregate, so we meet a lot more potential customers. We are meeting people whose business is IP - what more could you ask for?”   Terry Ludlow
Founder and CEO
Chipworks

“IPBC has always been a great conference – I have attended it all around the world. Here in Shanghai is the perfect mix of international and Asian company representatives, and those are the things that make this conference really interesting to me. It’s a very business-focused conference; it’s about intellectual property at its core. For that reason, along with the attendance you get here, we will always attend this conference”   Guy Proulx
Chairman and CEO
Transpacific IP

“IPBC is the pre-eminent conference right now. It brings together the high-end IP deal makers and there’s a lot of value in that - the networking opportunities are as important as the conference itself.”   Chad Hilyard
Chief IP counsel
Rockstar

“It has been a really great experience. The uniqueness of this conference is the attendance. There is a variety of companies, from large to small; professionals who are really at the top of their game in the IP field, so in that regard you really learn a lot. Having the chance to meet people from all of over the world in Shanghai is a really rare opportunity. In fact, it is so well organised that I expect to go to the next one in San Francisco.”   Ben Wang
Head of patents, China
