The International Trademark Association’s Annual Meeting is the must-attend yearly event for legal professionals with an interest in trademarks and related intellectual property. Attendees say, “if you’re not there… you’re not serious about trademarks!”

In no other venue will you make as many new contacts, have the ability to expand your business, meet with existing partners and colleagues, obtain continuing legal education credit and network among the world’s finest intellectual property lawyers.
