Asia Forum with the participation of Mexico
On December 3 and 4, 2015, the Business of Intellectual Property Asia Forum (BIP Asia IP Forum) was held in Hong Kong. Jointly organized by the local government, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and Hong Kong Design Centre, the BIP Asia Forum brings IP professionals and business leaders from all over the world to discuss the latest developments, and to explore business collaboration opportunities.
With the theme “IP: Transforming Global Business,” the event featured more than 80 prominent speakers and more than 2,400 IP professionals from 37 countries, which represents a 16 per cent increase compared to last year. There was also an 85 percent increase in participants from countries and regions such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates, demonstrating rising demand for IP services in the region.
The Director General of the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) participated in the forum with the aim of finding opportunities for Mexican companies to expand their business in the Asian market. To reach this objective, it will be necessary to get to know the usual practices of East Asia as well as its experience in creating trading hubs.
The next edition will return on 1-2 December 2016.
