This conference is a must-attend event for all senior trade mark and design administrators. It will bring you up-to-date with the recent EUIPO
legal reforms, focusing on changes to the law and practice, including a case law summary.

The EUIPO is constantly innovating and updating its online systems and tools, and you will get a tour through not only EUIPO but some of the linked
databases. It will show you the differences between US and EU practice and what you should do about them. It will also highlight the pitfalls to be aware
of in relation to trade marks in the US, as well as focussing on other country specific issues that you need to know about.

It will focus on common issues that can be encountered and how to deal with them to best effect. You will also learn about the international
registrations of trade marks and designs under both the Madrid System and the Hague System and what future developments are planned that will affect you.
