38th Annual Conference
24th - 27th September 2024

THE MANY TRAITS OF THE TRADEMARK EXPERT
Radisson Blu Waterfront, Stockholm, Sweden
Tuesday 24th - Friday 27th September 2024




“I never tried that before so I think I should definitely be able to do that.”
Astrid Lindgren, Pippi Longstocking

The 2024 MARQUES Annual Conference will be held in Stockholm.  Stockholm is the largest city in Scandinavia and effortlessly intertwines a rich history and stunning nature with the cultural sophistication, modern architecture, and dynamic attitudes of a thriving city.

The role of trade mark experts is becoming more and more complex, as they have to navigate new challenges ranging from emerging technologies and business models to regulations regarding advertising and sustainability.

Taking inspiration from the can-do attitude of Swedish literary character Pippi Longstocking, this year’s Annual Conference sessions will cover diverse topics including: litigation and public opinion; working in areas outside your comfort zone; understanding local traditions; navigating consumer values; successful online enforcement; how to demonstrate market realities before EUIPO; visual disclaimers in designs; and the latest EU case law on trade marks and designs. There will also be workshops on artificial intelligence, trade secrets, co-branding, copyright in IP enforcement and amicus curiae briefs.

Once again, we will also have a full suite of additional workshops which you can choose to attend on the Thursday afternoon.
