Do you think about your intellectual property (IP)? Do you understand whether you should protect your IP?
Having the right type of IP protection helps you to stop people stealing or copying the names of your products or brands, your inventions, the design or look of your products and the things you write, make or produce.
A company’s IP is often their most important asset. If used well, IP can offer a solid platform for any business to grow. So how you plan, manage and protect your ideas should be a crucial feature in your business planning and yet IP is often not considered and under-protected!
This workshop aims to give participants a good overview of IP (patents, trade marks, designs and copyright) and how to apply this information to their business. The audience is broken up into small teams and presented with a series of scenarios in which IP is crucial to a business. Once the teams have discussed the scenarios, the Intellectual Property speaker will take them through the answers to the problem.
So if you’re wondering what IP is, what you own and how you could protect it come along to our workshop at this year’s Check-in @ Stansted Business Exhibition.
The workshop is being held in the Hallingbury Suite on the 1st floor of the hotel. Please follow the signs, if unsure, ask at reception who will guide you to the room.
Free parking is available all day and there will be food and refreshments available to purchase during the day in the main restaurant/bar area of the hotel.
