On the 9th of December 2020, the Mexican Group of AIPPI (AMPPI) held their second General Assembly of 2020. The first subject in their agenda was the awarding of the Premio AMPPI 2020 – a yearly award given by the Mexican group to one individual who excels in their commitment to IP in the world and who has significantly influenced and supported the Mexican group, helping them in better positioning their group worldwide.
The Award for this year was granted to Monsieur Laurent Thibon, who served as General Secretary of AIPPI from 2014 – 2017 and is a member of the AIPPI French National Group.
Thanks to his never-ending support, the Mexican group was able to host the annual international AIPPI World Congress in 2018. For the Mexican Group it is very important to acknowledge M. Thibon’s support which made possible the opportunity to boast and feature Mexico and the technical quality of their experts in the IP field.
For this and many reasons more, we selected and proposed Laurent as the recipient of our most prestigious award and felt honored when he accepted to receive such important recognition.
