HGF IP in Retail online training events

November 2020

Event date: 1st December 2020

In 2020, HGF will be delivering its 8th Annual IP in Retail Conference differently.

As usual, we have put together an agenda which considers topical IP issues encountered by in-house counsel for retailers and fashion brands. However, rather than our usual face-to-face events, we have planned a programme of 15 webinars, giving delegates the opportunity to select those topics of particular interest to them.

The topics will be delivered weekly throughout autumn and winter, all being held from 11.00am – 11.45am BST, with the dates set out below.

A full copy of the programme containing detailed descriptions of all the modules is available for download here. As you can see, the modules are grouped into three categories; Brands & designs, Problems & problem solving in retail and Commercial issues for retailers. For logistical reasons, we have changed the order in which the sessions are being delivered.
