Welcome to INTA’s 137th Annual Meeting!
I am pleased to report that the INTA Annual Meeting registrants continue to grow! We expect more than 9,500 registrants in 2015. In anticipation of this, the 2015 Annual Meeting Co-Chairs, Project Team Members and INTA staff have worked closely to develop a full agenda which promises something for everyone!
If you are registering for the Annual Meeting for the first time, arm yourself with these tips. For Annual Meeting veterans, take advantage of new additional educational programs on Saturday and Sunday. Exclusively for in-house counsel, participate in Industry Exchanges that will be trialed for the first time at the 2015 Annual Meeting on Tuesday May 5, 3:30pm to 5:00pm. We continue to offer our highly popular Course on International Trademark and Practice on Sunday. For professors and students, don’t miss out on Academic Day and Career Development Day respectively.
Badge pick up will now be available as early as 9:00 am on Saturday, so you can enjoy registration benefits as soon as the Annual Meeting starts. Optimize your schedule and avoid missing sessions by conducting meetings in the San Diego Convention Center. Learn more about the different types of meeting spaces that we have designed for you.
Thank you to all our members, exhibitors, sponsors, business partners and prospective members for your support at the upcoming Annual Meeting in San Diego. Your contributions to the Association are an expression of your commitment to INTA’s mission. We take this responsibility to heart and intend to deliver the best ever Annual Meeting to you!
Advance the mission of INTA when you register for the Annual Meeting!
I look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
