INTA to hold leadership meeting in Panama City
The International Trademark Association (INTA) has revealed that its leadership meeting will take place in Panama City, Panama.

INTA’s meeting convenes the trademark profession’s key decision makers. The 2015 meeting will be the association’s first major event in Latin America.

The announcement was made during the opening ceremony of the 2014 leadership meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.

The decision for the location was because of the significance of the Panama Canal expansion, and its impact on global trade and trademarks.

INTA president Mei-lan Stark commented: “The 2015 leadership meeting will provide leading intellectual property attorneys and business people from all over the world with a unique opportunity to see the canal first-hand at this pivotal moment in its history.”
