You demand the best. We deliver.

Hear some of the feedback from what your peers learnt at GPC 2014:

“The Global Patent Congress provides an opportunity to meet my peers and discuss current developments in the IP field. In addition it presents an opportunity to meet with potential new service providers in one place in a short period of time. Having all these providers together saves a lot of time and money. The event is always very well organized and IQPC very actively use the feedback from the participants to improve the structure of the conference. For example the amount of time set aside for peer to peer networking has increased in the past year. As a result the event becomes better every year. If you are responsible for IP in your organization, either small or big, this is a great event to attend” - Jan-Willem Goedmakers, Head of Intellectual Property, Stamicarbon
