IP in Retail Conference 2018

September 2018

Retailers have had mixed fortunes over the last 12 months. Some well-known names in the high street and retail parks, such as Maplin, Toys ‘R’ Us and Poundworld, are no longer with us. However, the sector overall continues to show growth, particularly in e-commerce, where the UK remains the third largest global market.

Whatever the uncertainties, intellectual property will continue to be a core asset of every retailer. In IP in Retail 2018 we aim to deliver a little more certainty, as well as positivity and creativity, for the year ahead.

We are delighted to confirm the dates for our IP in Retail 2018 Conferences:

Wednesday 10th October – HGF Leeds Office, Leeds
Thursday 18th October – Prince Philip House, London
Thursday 1st November – Tobacco Theatre, Amsterdam

To RSVP please contact Liz Davies or call +44(0) 113 233 0189. To view the full programme please click here.
