This international conference aims to bring together practitioners from different fields and practice areas of intellectual property to share the latest developments, best practices and experiences. The conference is an excellent opportunity to network with experts and practitioners in the field, establish contacts with new business partners and friends, and enhance existing relationships.

AIPPI looks forward to engaging and stimulating discussions in the relaxing atmosphere of Jurmala, a place that has been famed for centuries as a resort and seaside spa area.

The conference programme will provide an overview of the latest trends and issues faced by IP in the context of globalisation and new technologies. Leading experts and practitioners in the area of IP will present and share their insights during 12 sessions to be held on 12 and 13 April.

The conference programme will not only provide an enriching professional experience, it will also include enjoyable social events: a warm welcome reception hosted in Jurmala City Museum, a national themed evening inside the acclaimed and recently renovated Dzintari Concert Hall, a gala dinner with a view of the calming Baltic sea and a compelling evening programme. There will also be the opportunity to enjoy full-day sightseeing tours and indulge in spa treatments.
