Tomorrow's Leader Award

Applications will reopen in 2018.

In its first year, INTA’s Tomorrow’s Leader Award will recognize two outstanding young practitioners for their early leadership merits in the IP industry. As part of the award, the winning practitioners will gain the unique opportunity to serve on an INTA committee and will receive complimentary admittance to INTA’s 2018 Annual Meeting in Seattle and 2017 Leadership Meeting in Washington, D.C .
