This year the 9th edition of the IP Service World is taking place. What makes this years‘ event so special? What is new in 2018?

This year the IP Service World team implemented a new event format. The Job Speed Dating is for leaders who are looking for a skilled and motivated new coworker. The idea is to meet new talents who start to work in the IP industry. Students in the fields physics, chemistry and engineering as well as soon graduating patent attorneys will meet top employers within the IP sector. You can also find a Job-Wall with IP Industry Opportunities in the exibition area.

Another great networking opportunity at the evening events will also wait for you. With a new evening event location and concept, you have the opportunity to network not only at the pre-evening event but also at the main-evening and the after hour reception.

Additional fun is guarenteed through various onsite events. Join us in visiting the funny patents area or take a break at the table soccer!

Why should IP experts be part of the IP Service World network?

We are user oriented!

The IP Service World is a very user oriented congress fair. With around 80 solution providers, the IP Service World is the biggest congress fair in Europe.

We are international!

Our speakers and solution providers are from more than 30 countries. Those experts are working in various branches but mostly know each other. The IP community grows every year and stays connected through our interactive app.

Every year the IP Service World is like a class reunion for me. Looking forward meeting the class of 2018!

Michael May, Project Lead, IP Service World

We make networking great again!

Stay connected with more than six hours of networking. The corporate speed dating and the evening event are great opportunities to meet great IP experts. It’s a match!

The IP Service World team is looking forward to a great event this year. Looking forward to seeing you!
