The following is excerpted from the invitation by Douglas K. Norman, IPO President, in the program brochure:
It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2011 IPO Annual Meeting at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles, California. The program committee, chaired by Charles M. Kinzig, GlaxoSmithKline, and vice chaired by Bart Eppenauer, Microsoft Corp., and Dee Ann Weldon-Wilson, Exxon Mobil Corp, have created an excellent event.
The Los Angeles IPO Annual Meeting offers a mix of educational programs, committee meetings, networking opportunities and exhibits. Renew acquaintances and make new friends by attending the Monday Reception & Dinner at Paramount Studios, one of the worlds’ largest and busiest production facilities.
We are pleased to have Chad Deaton, CEO of Baker Hughes, Inc., as Monday’s luncheon speaker. Tuesday’s luncheon speaker will be James Pooley, Deputy Director General for Patents at the World Intellectual Property Organization. Concurrent parallel sessions on Patent and Trademark topics are offered throughout the meeting, including Ethics presentations for both patent and trademark attorneys.
This year, IPO is offering an additional, one-day CLE conference on “Compulsory Licensing as an Emerging Global IP Issue.” This program will take place on September 14 at the JW Marriott, the day after the Annual Meeting.
