Help your exhibitors protect their IP rights: Support & training offer by EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) for organizers

In 2020, as part of its Strategic Plan 2025, the EUIPO launched the Ideas Powered for business Programme.

This programme aims to empower EU SMEs to protect and enforce their IP rights and inform them of the benefits of IP for their businesses throughout the EU and beyond.

During this UFI Connects, the EUIPO will provide a short overview of the programme and some initiatives to support EU SMEs, in this case fair-organisers’ clients — the exhibitors. These initiatives include free IP consultations, or a fund of up to EUR 2,500 to register IP rights.

The EUIPO team will share potential areas of collaboration with the exhibition organizer community and will be open to listening to your thoughts too.

Everyone is welcome to join. There will be a follow up session on Wednesday, 5 October 11:00-12:00 CET for interested parties.

Register for this session.
