Scenes From 2023 Conference

Info

EDDA RAGNARSDOTTIR | Carbfix

I want to express my gratitude for the incredibly insightful and informative conference. The way it was organized and executed was truly inspiring, I left feeling energized and motivated. Thank you to all the organizers and speakers for putting together such a wonderful event. It was an honor to participate in it.

Testimonials

I was delighted to be back at the annual BPIP, which is one of the best IP conferences in the world.

DAVID KAPPOS  Former Director of the USPTO, Partner Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP

"

The conference this year was, by far, the best yet. I know we say this year in and year out, but I stand by my words. The sessions on the first day were super insightful and raised some issues I think we'll all have to contend with in the next couple of years (if not already). The speakers were excellent and I think the main indicator of the high quality of this conference is how lively and engaging the sessions were. Everyone had something to pitch in on the topics, be it during the lecture itself or on the coffee breaks that followed - you could really see how the topics resonated with people.

"

JOSEPH ROZHENKO | Director of Intellectual Property at Momentis Surgical

It was one of the most interesting, amusing - no, funny(!) - enjoyable, content full days that I have spent away from my desk in a very long time(!) Did I mention that I also had a good time meeting some old friends and making some new ones?
