Registration open for 2024 Annual Conference

You can now register for the 38th MARQUES Annual Conference, which takes place in Stockholm, Sweden from Tuesday 24 to Friday 27 September 2024.

The theme of this year’s Annual Conference is “The many traits of the trade mark expert”. As the role of trade mark experts becomes more complex, they have navigate new challenges ranging from emerging technologies and business models to regulations regarding advertising and sustainability.

This year’s Annual Conference sessions will cover diverse topics including:

  • litigation and public opinion;
  • working in areas outside your comfort zone;
  • understanding local traditions;
  • navigating consumer values;
  • successful online enforcement;
  • how to demonstrate market realities before EUIPO;
  • visual disclaimers in designs; and
  • the latest EU case law on trade marks and designs.

There will also be workshops on artificial intelligence, trade secrets, co-branding, copyright in IP enforcement and amicus curiae briefs.

Social activities include an informal Welcome Reception at the Stockholm City Hall, a Cultural Evening at the Artipelag venue in Värmdö in the Stockholm archipelago and a Gala Dinner.

Accommodation will be in the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, the Radisson Blu Royal Viking and the Nordic Light Hotel. All three hotels provide easy access to the conference centre and local amenities.

This year, all delegates arriving at Arlanda Airport are advised to use the Arlanda Express train to Stockholm Central Railway Station. MARQUES has agreed a discount.

Modular registration is available for delegates who live locally or choose to source their own accommodation.

Certificates of attendance will be available on request, including for individual sessions if required.
