2017 AIPPI Congress in Sydney
At the Helsinki meeting the Australian AIPPI group won the right to host the 2017 SYDNEY WORLD INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY CONGRESS. We hope that you will be able to join us in promoting and celebrating intellectual property in the lead up to and during this exciting event.
Energised, ever-changing and a hub of excellence: Sydney, Australia looks forward to welcoming AIPPI 2017.
AIPPI Australia will deliver a memorable event for delegates ‘Down Under’ in 2017 – and we hope to have your support.
The return of the AIPPI meeting to the Southern Hemisphere, and in particular the Asia-Pacific region, offers a great opportunity to engage and support the continued growth of AIPPI in the Pacific, South East and East Asia.
Sydney is a safe and secure city which is reasonably priced and easy to move around. The city is within a time zone that bridges the close of US and opening of European markets and is close to our colleagues in Asia. Additionally, Sydney is Australia’s global city and a vibrant legal and financial services capital in the Asia-Pacific.
Holding the AIPPI meeting in Australia encourages the consideration of issues and viewpoints which are vital to the future of the international IP system. Australia is a wealthy and developed economy, but we are also a large net importer of IP. Many of our industries are highly IP dependant and focused on export, to our region and the world, but our national perspective is neither that of the large IP-focused nations, nor that of a newly developing economy. Sydney is also a capital for innovation, with $6.2 billion per annum spent on research in New South Wales.
Sydney is a showcase city which exudes the fundamentals that AIPPI represents.
We look forward to connecting and celebrating with you in Sydney in 2017!
