INTA’s Anticounterfeiting Committee is organizing a training seminar for customs officials in Central America on November 17, 2015, from 11:00 am to 4:15 pm at the Megapolis Convention Center in Panama City during the Leadership Meeting.
The purpose of the event is advocate for stronger anticounterfeiting measures in the region and provide a platform for members to better educate these officials about their brands. The committee has invited distinguished speakers from the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the customs offices of seven Central American countries and Mexico.
The event is open to all INTA corporate members attending the Leadership Meeting. The seminar is designed to give trademark owners the opportunity to present their brand-specific identification training to the officials, so that these officials will be equipped with the trademark owners’ insight on how to distinguish genuine and counterfeit goods at their borders. Representatives from Procter and Gamble, Chanel and Richemont have already confirmed their participation in the event.
If you have already registered for the Leadership Meeting and wish to add this seminar to your calendar or have any other questions about this event, please do not hesitate to contact INTA’s Anticounterfeiting Advisor, Maysa Razavi, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
