About IP in Retail 2017 Conference

In September 2017, HGF held its fifth annual IP in Retail conference in London and Leeds which attracted over 100 delegates from leading wholesale, retail and fashion brands.  The conference addressed a range of  topical IP issues including how to run a compliant influencer campaign, designs and packaging best practice, parody trade marks, the likely impact of artificial intelligence on trade mark protection and budgeting issues for retailers. 

Other areas covered included a review of UK IPO decisions, an update on the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the impact of Brexit on global brand strategies.

Feedback for the event was very positive, including;

"The conference has been fantastic. Very useful".

"The bite-size session format is brilliant for the in-house lawyer".

"Clear, focused, practical examples".

All slides from the conference are now available to view and download. Please click here to access them.
