INTA-USPTO Roundtables
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Participate in a luncheon roundtable with key USPTO officials, including Trademark Law Office Group Director Tom Vlcek at an INTA-USPTO Roundtable.

Thursday, September 26, 2013
Minneapolis, Minnesota

The roundtable is designed to help the USPTO better understand the needs of those using its services and to offer insights into the USPTO operations.

This unique opportunity to learn what is going on at the USPTO, ask questions and make suggestions for improvement should not be missed. 

To preserve the desired interactive format at each roundtable, attendance is limited to the first 25 people to register. Upon reaching capacity, a waiting list will be created. If a seat becomes available, you will be contacted immediately. Registrants are also invited to send no more than two questions in advance to ensure there is sufficient time to address them during the roundtable. Please send your questions to Craig Morris at by September 20, 2013.
Note: This is not a forum to discuss individual cases.
