Program on Trademark Strategy For Chinese Companies Investing Overseas

·         Location: Chengdu, Qingdao, Shenzhen, Tianjin and Wuhan

·         Dates: 01 Jun 2016 to 08 Jun 2016

IP Key (the European IP technical assistance/exchange program) is organising 5 half-day Trade Mark strategy seminars in Chengdu, Qingdao, Shenzhen, Tianjin and Wuhan between the 1st  – 8th June.  The following is from their news release:

The purpose of the trade mark IP strategy conference is to support Chinese companies and legal representatives on IP issues as they internationalise their business. Experts will discuss the importance of an IP strategy and the tools available to support its successful implementation. Two EU experts, Mr. Christophe Gimenez, EUIPO, IP Attaché for the EU Delegation to China and Mr. Martin Beckman, Project Manager, EUIPO will share their knowledge and expertise on how to create an IP strategy with the support of international databases.

 The seminars are a good opportunity for Chinese companies who are doing businesses abroad, or are planning for international expansion, as well as trade mark agencies and specialist to learn more about the international tools that can help them be more strategic in their approach to protect and register trade marks abroad.

Simultaneous Interpretation in English and Chinese will be available at the conferences.

Agenda for each city is available online on the IP Key website:
