Brands, Inventions and Ideas Event 8th Oct

This FREE event aims to offer help and advice to businesses who want to know more about trade marks, patents and designs and the value in registering them.

Identifying these assets and realising their value can make an impact on the medium to long term success of most businesses.Every business has some form of Intellectual Property that it uses to distinguish itself from its competitors.

Whether it is their trading name, a logo or a brand - all businesses need to be aware of the value and importance of their intellectual assets as well as the risks of not registering them, to prevent others using them at anytime, anywhere, anyhow.

This event will provide a seminar, networking opportunities, expert advice and support, along with industry professionals who will be on hand to offer guidance on individual questions during the day.Additional support will be available on the day from Business Link and the professional body for trade marks - ITMA and patents - CIPA. With the opportunity to attend a licensing workshop.

Free refreshments will be provided.
