WTR Connect 2020

October 2020

Event date: 6th October 2020

HGF is sponsoring WTR Connect 2020 virtual event on 6th-15th October.

WTR Connect has been purpose-built for trade mark and brand protection experts globally. From 6-15 October, WTR will be hosting more than 20 individual interactive digital sessions, designed to facilitate discussion, benchmarking and the sharing of best practice around key topic areas and challenges facing trade mark and brand leaders.

HGF Partner Lee Curtis will be co-hosting the ‘Trade mark challenges and opportunities in fashion and luxury goods’ boardroom on 7th October:

Consumers often align with fashion and luxury brands based on how they make them feel, with brands symbolising status and wealth. This closed-door discussion will look at how brand and trade mark leaders in the sector are ensuring brands stay relevant and are recognised by consumers in an industry that is plagued by counterfeits and imposters.
