Celebrating its 120th Anniversary this year, AIPPI is going “down under” to hold its annual AIPPI World Congress in one of the world’s most beautiful and vibrant cities – Sydney, Australia.

The members of the Bureau of AIPPI and of the Australian Group of AIPPI are excited about welcoming you to a city and country renowned for visually stunning attractions, such as the iconic Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. This is a unique setting for you to take part in AIPPI’s comprehensive Educational Programme, featuring all areas of IP law and all disciplines of practice from prosecution to litigation, while at the same time taking advantage of extensive networking opportunities with attendees from around the world, including prominent government, IP office and industry officials.

The Congress will take place at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC), which opened in late 2016 and provides state of the art facilities and comforts. The ICC is located in Darling Harbour, in the heart of Sydney, allowing for many of the events and receptions to take place on or around the spectacular natural harbour. Sydney and Australia are safe, affordable and welcoming. Australians are famous for being exceptionally friendly and Sydney, with a diverse and multicultural population of almost 5 million, will make all AIPPI Congress attendees feel at home.

AIPPI has been “Shaping IP for 120 Years”. This is your year to take part in that activity and to do it in what promises to be an unforgettable AIPPI World Congress.

We are pleased to name Emirates as our partnered airline, where all attendees receive special fares! Read more…
