Hear what past attendees are saying:

“TMAP is an incredible opportunity to meet new friends and colleagues and to catch up with those that I only see at these meetings.  I am particularly excited to kick off the 2018 meeting in Orlando by volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida with my INTA friends.”

“TMAP allows me to attend panels and workshops to broaden my IP knowledge as it relates to trademarks, brands, IP strategy, IP rights, enforcement, searches, foreign rights, portfolio management and how it interrelates to our digital age while being in an inspiring atmosphere and having networking opportunities. I look forward to continuing this knowledge base at future TMAP Meetings.”
