Feeling festive? Come to the MARQUES sub-forum!

You may not know it, but MARQUES is participating in the China Trademark Festival 2017, where we are conducting a Sub-Forum.  

The China Trademark Festival 2017 is being held in the Guilin International Conference and Exhibition Center, 22 Lijiang Road, Guilin, Guangxi.  The Sub-Forum itself takes place on Sunday 3 September and it lasts all morning (9 am to 12.30 pm, to be precise). The title is "Effective trade mark and brand protection and enforcement strategies from national to regional and going global: brand owners’ needs v legal obligations and available procedural means".  

Want more information? Just read on!

The Chair of MARQUES Council Dr Gregor Versondert and other invited Corporate members of MARQUES and eminent Guest Speakers representing  the China Trademark Association, the China Trademark Office, the Chinese industry, and other official institutions will take part in two Panel Sessions – moderated by Ms Julia Hongbo Zhong and Mr Sébastien Vitali, respectively the Chair and Vice-Chair of MARQUES China Team. They will discuss a wide range of topics covering: the significance of brands and their cultural impact; the proper selection of trade mark filing and prosecution strategies as the first means of brand protection; a comparative analysis of those in conjunction with trade mark classification and trade mark examination practices in national, regional and international jurisdictions, across trade mark clearance and freedom-to-use in a multijurisdictional environment; defence of trade marks against bad faith use and registration; and comparative analysis of trade mark litigation.

The full Programme of the MARQUES Sub-Forum as well as further details about MARQUES at the China Trademark Festival 2017 will be made available shortly on the MARQUES website at  https://www.marques.org/conferences/.
