FICPI holds a World Congress every three years, attendance of which is restricted to FICPI members.
The World Congresses are one of the premier meetings in the intellectual property legal world. Usually gathering 300-400 attendees from around the world, the meetings are held in world-class cities.
FICPI Members meet for a week of professional development and most importantly, networking during five-star social events. The members are often accompanied by their partners/guests, and hence an engaging accompanying persons programme is held in conjunction with the congress.
In each of the intervening two years an Open Forum is held. Open Forum are open to the public and FICPI welcomes colleagues from industry, governmental and legislative bodies as well as members and their guests to attend.
FICPI's first Open Forum was held in 1993, and ever since, each Open Forum has incorporated FICPI’s highly regarded three-stream format covering patents, trade marks and IP business practice issues.
Presentation and Papers from FICPI's events may be found in our Presentations Library.
