Singapore has been chosen for the 2020 Conference of International Trademark Association INTA. This is the first time that this conference to mark the 142 nd Annual Meeting, will be held in this part of the World.
Singapore has been chosen for the gathering because of its vibrant environment, cultural diversity, ease of accessibility and achievements in the field of IP.
INTA is a global association of brand owners and professionals dedicated to supporting trademarks and related IP to foster consumer trust, economic growth and innovation.
The Annual INTA meet is planned from 25 April to 29 April 2020. INTA before selecting the city for the meet recently opened an Asia Pacific representative office in the country last March. The meet will be held at the Marina Bay Sands.
As claimed by INTA this meet is supposed to be world’s largest trademark event. The annual gathering, attracts around 11,000 trademark practitioners and intellectual property professionals from more than 150 countries.
In Asia it was Hong Kong where this meet was held in 2014 for the first time outside USA. Though the Chinese have always been accused by the Western Countries, especially for failing to protect the so called Intellectual Property of the West.
Though now both China and India are fully aware that how through deceit USA and few other Countries have stolen the IP of the East. So any such claims are simply not entertained by China or India.
After the successful event meet at Hong Kong, INTA’s board of directors approved a rotation strategy to host the annual meeting in a location outside the United States every third year. Accordingly this conference is going to be in Singapore in 2020.
The conference will “connect the Singapore innovation ecosystem to the global community of trademark experts and intellectual property professionals who will build on each other’s best practices and expertise”, said Mr Daren Tang, chief executive of Intellectual Property Office, Singapore.
Registration for Singapore’s event will open January next year, with presale tickets available for purchase at INTA’s next annual meeting in Boston.
