You are invited to attend an upcoming event hosted by the World Trade Center New Orleans with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) Intellectual Property (IP) Attaché Program on December 4, 2019, 2:00 – 3:30 pm.
The USPTO is the federal agency that grants U.S. patents and registers trademarks. In addition, the USPTO provides advice on IP policy, protection and enforcement and works to promote stronger and more effective IP protection around the world. The IP Attaché Program consists of thirteen IP attachés – who are diplomats – posted in ten countries who advocate for improvements to foreign IP systems, conduct training programs and public awareness campaigns on IP, and assist U.S. stakeholders with IP issues in their respective regions.
This program will be an excellent opportunity to learn about important and emerging IP issues in foreign regions, ask questions relevant to your business or industry, and connect with the IP attachés. Present for this program will be Dominic Keating, the Director of the IP Attaché Program, and the IP attachés assigned to U.S. missions in China, the European Union, Mexico, South America, and Southeast Asia.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP by November 25. In addition, more information about the IP Attaché Program is available on the attached flyer or you may visit the IP Attaché Program page on the USPTO website.
