September 26-28, 2018 — Association of Intellectual Property Firms (AIPF) Annual Meeting


Swissôtel, 323 East Upper Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60601

For many, it seems we live in an era where it feels everything feels different to what was the norm just a few years ago. The same applies in the realm of IP, whether one is seeking to develop and exploit IP or one is providing services in this sector. The 2018 AIPF Annual Meeting builds on the Association's long-standing practice of providing attendees with information and insight that will help attendees navigate an IP world where "everything feels different." Chicago-Kent is a supporting partner for this year's AIPF Annual Meeting.
