In-person meetings and conferences were our main venues for connecting to the IP community, networking with peers and clients, forming reliable business relations, and exchanging valuable industry insights. The outbreak of COVID-19 has changed many aspects of our professional life. The pandemic has put all the face-to-face events on hold and transitioned them into virtual ones.
While online format can undoubtedly fulfill the majority of conferences‘ or meetings‘ objectives, it can never replace the benefits of personal interactions. Having a coffee or a glass of beer together is something about „breaking bread“ or getting to know each other better and establishing trust.
COVID is not over and is here to stay for an unknown while, but let it not stop us from staying connected and developing!
Here are some of the relevant IP and patent events and conferences scheduled for 2022. So far, most of them will be arranged as „in-person,“ let’s hope that this will remain as planned.
