The IP Law & Management Institute Heads East
Cascading waterfalls, bustling casino tables, a cornucopia of delicious food and drinks, and the constant buzz of conversation. These are the sights and sounds of last week’s Monday night dinner function at the 2023 IP Law & Management Institute that took place at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida.
Accompanying the beautifully staged and enjoyable networking opportunities, the event also showcased informational business meetings, and an abundance of relevant and engaging content in the form of main stage thought leadership sessions, smaller group think tank and roundtable discussions, as well as interactive and audience engaging panel presentations.
A range of relevant topic areas were discussed that touched on the critical aspects of IP leadership today, such as:
