MacRoberts heading to Barcelona for INTA Annual Meeting 2017
MacRoberts Partners, Julie Hamilton and David Gourlay, are looking forward to heading to Barcelona this weekend for the Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association (INTA).
INTA is the global association of trademark owners and professionals dedicated to supporting trademarks and related intellectual property in order to protect consumers and promote fair and effective commerce. Its members include more than 7,000 organisations from 190 countries, who collectively contribute almost US $12 trillion (€8.8 trillion) to global GDP annually. This year’s meeting features not only the largest and most diverse group of attendees, ranging from brand management professionals, C-level executives, general counsel, government officials, academics and media, but the programme also covers a wide variety of trademark and brand related topics.
This is Julie and David’s third trip to INTA, having attended the Annual Meeting in San Diego and Orlando in previous years. During their five-day visit, they will attend various events and receptions including the Opening Ceremony and Keynote Address and the Welcome Reception.
The Meeting will also be attended by various international membership contacts that MacRoberts are associated with, including ADVOC, the American Bar Association, Interact Law, Next Law Global Referral Network and EuroITCounsel.
