2017 AIPPI World Congress

The 2017 AIPPI World Congress has wrapped up in Sydney for another year.

The Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) is the world’s leading international organisation dedicated to the development and improvement of legal regimes for the protection of intellectual property. Based in Switzerland, the organisation has over 9,000 members representing more than 125 countries.

Celebrating its 120th anniversary, this year’s five day Congress focussed on AIPPI’s comprehensive educational programme, and also provided extensive networking opportunities with attendees from around the world, including prominent government, IP office and industry officials.

As part of the Congress, POF held a networking function at Studio, Sydney Tower, 305 metres above the heart of Sydney. The night was a huge success with colleagues attending from firms all over the world.

We are already looking forward to next year’s event in Cancun, Mexico.
