The Leadership Meeting brings together INTA volunteers and leaders once a year to advance the Association’s objectives and goals. This meeting offers registrants an advanced-level educational program and the opportunity to conduct business and network with colleagues from around the world over four days in an amazing location. INTA is excited to bring the Leadership Meeting to Austin, Texas for the first time—“Live Music Capital of the World” and home to some of the best BBQ in America.

The programming will feature a double track of concurrent programs in the afternoons––giving you more opportunities to find subject matter with takeaways for your own practice. The expanded programming has enabled a larger category of programs, encompassing substantive content and skills for in-house and private practice lawyers and brand owners. The many sessions being offered will address the cutting-edge issues of trademark law, including, but not limited to: the latest AI tools available to run your business, issues relating to the emerging industry of cannabis, Free Trade Zones, and Online Counterfeiting, as well as deeper dives into design patent and copyright issues. The program also feature two highlight sessions where the audience will hear directly from C-Suite level speakers from Ogilvy and South by Southwest (SXSW). And back for its second year will be the INTA Influencers session which gives dedicated association leaders the opportunity to share their passions and personal experiences with their peers
