Following on from the hugely successful Technology Patent Network conferences in London 2018 and most recently San Francisco, Technology Patent Network Europe 2019 conference takes a broad global view of the patent protection landscape and then delves deeper into the topics of specific current interest. Extended round table discussion groups enable a couple of hours to be spent in small groups, sharing views on a range of topics of the delegates’ choosing. For fledgling technology innovators, the conference features a hugely popular open clinic to enable in-house counsel to quiz specialist private patent attorneys from around the globe on their own specific pressing patent issues.   

As well as conference presentations and the in-depth panel discussion along with audience Q&A, sessions and the discussion groups, a great deal of networking time is set aside throughout the day for networking opportunities, starting with welcome coffee, continuing through networking coffee breaks and a three course lunch – and culminating in informal drinks and canapés for all speakers, sponsors and delegates.
