IP in Retail Conference 2019

August 2019

IP in Retail Conference 2019 in Leeds on 24th September and in London 1st October – register for your place today. A bumpy and uncertain year ahead for UK consumers means that many retailers are adapting and innovating, both in-store and online, in order to retain market share, as well as responding to consumer-driven trends such as recommerce, personalisation and social influencers.

As retail models develop and change, the role of intellectual property will remain central to many strategies. In IP in Retail 2019 we consider the IP dimension of current trends and issues in the sector.

The conference will take place on the following dates:

Tuesday 24th September – HGF Office, Leeds
Tuesday 1st October – Royal Society of Chemistry, London

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