ipCG’s Thought Leadership Conference is an annual event that brings together 30 to 40 key decision makers across a broad selection of industries to focus on IP issues related to business strategy, value generation and potential disruptions in the business environment. We co-hosted this year’s conference at the Willis Tower in Chicago, with one of our preferred IP law firms Marshall Gerstein. This ¾ day seminar style conference explored “Linking IP and Business”. Conference participants are C-Suite, senior executives, IP managers, and other experts charged with providing insight and advice to the CEO/President. Participants benefited through briefings and group discussions on IP topics that are directly relevant to business and an opportunity to network with individuals in other industries (we strive to make sure that attendees are not competitors) and get fresh ideas on solutions to persistent problems.
