INTA 2013 - Dallas

Handshake

Agile IP's Rob Sayer and David Fry attended the International Trademark Association (INTA) Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas, held 4th - 8th May 2013.

This year's event was the 135th INTA Meeting, attended by more than 9500 intellectual property professionals from across the globe.  In addition to hearing of updates in international trademark law, it afforded us the opportunity to meet with our US clients and overseas colleagues who help us provide overseas protection for our clients.

The keynote address was given by Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, with an eye-opener on how to build a global brand.  The Cowboys are the second largest sporting brand, behind Manchester United FC.

INTA, founded in 1878, is a not for profit membership organisation dedicated to supporting the advancement of trademarks and related intellectual property.  

Next year's event will be held in Hong Kong from 10th to 14th May 2014.
