Trade shows are frontiers of innovation and creativity, but they can also be catalysts for disputes over intellectual property, such as trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and patents on inventions and designs. Enforcement of intellectual property rights is of vital importance at trade shows – where in one venue and in just a few days products and services receive the attention of a wide international audience. With some 260 million visitors attending trade shows worldwide annually,* the annual global trade shows audience, taken as a group, would constitute the fifth most populated country in the world.** This conference brings together intellectual property law experts from the United States and other countries – attorneys, judges, representatives of trade show operators, and others – to discuss best practices for intellectual property rights enforcement at trade shows, including practices in courts and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.
Note: The Conference will be followed on Friday, October 5, 2018, by the Annual Conference of the Nevada Bar Intellectual Property Law Section.
