As always I thoroughly enjoyed the 5th edition of the WIPF held recently in Dubai. The conference attracted 300+ delegates from across the globe encompassing such diversified topics related to patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets and including specialized panel discussions on alternative dispute resolution and mediation. All of the topics were equally globally diversified involving issues emanating from Middle East, India, ASEAN, Europe and the US. I think WIPF has proven to be a perfect forum for much needed IP discussions and I recommend all IP professionals to attend the forthcoming WIPF conferences.
I participated for the first time in Wotld IP Forum 2018. I was an invited speaker. I must tell you I had the most wonderful experience in it. What I like about this is several things which were wholly different to all the other world and local conferences. Here they are for easy reference
The forum organizing timeline was flexible and the topics as well.
The timing given for presentation is great.
All the co panelists and speakers were very well chosen for their subjects and the topics were very timely and appropriately designated.
All participants I noted were extremely well interested in the sessions and networking both which made it very serious when it had to be and fun at the other times.
The venue too was very good, good ambience and great location.
Finally I must reiterate that I m a regular speaker for many international forums on aspects of Entertainment Law but the best experience I had in every area was at the World
It was indeed a wonderful session and I feel proud to be part of this event, now for subsequently two years. There is no other Forum in the world, which provides such a networking and interaction with numerous IP practitioner from all part of the world, under one roof. All the presentations were very useful and informative, and provision of selecting the session of your choice is the best part of the conference. I would like to congratulate each member of organizing team for organizing such a huge and successful event. All the best for future assignments.
"This World IP Forum conference is very different from other IP convention, in a very positive way. This is at a large part due to the fact that the panel discussions come with highly motivated panelists that are usually passionate about what they want to say. This makes the sessions very exciting, as compared with other conventions where selected speakers share what a committee in the background has decided to ventilate to the public."
"Indeed, the conference was a good learning and networking experience for us. We really enjoyed the quality and content of the conference, the selection of topics and session was insightful and contemporary. We appreciate the great energy and worldwide attendance of the attorneys"

The WIPF at Dubai was a very diverse and interesting insight to the state of IP, in particular with focus on the far East and US. A lot of the information was new for me and very usefull in my daily work.
The Dubai WIPF-2018 was excellent and thanks to make the event such a success. It provides a valuable opportunity to meet experienced and insightful experts and listen to hottest IP topics. Looking forwards to attending more of these events in the future.
The sessions were of excellent quality: in particular I learnt more about the effects of Artificial Intelligence on all aspects of Intellectual Property Rights and all of the advantages and pitfalls of using “free” / open-source software than I had had in previous IP conferences I have attended.
As far as networking was concerned, I made several high level contacts in major companies that I’m hoping are going to lead to future business in the next six months.
WIPF was a great experience and kudos to the organizers of first class event for gathering so many professionals along with well-known leaders to talk about critical and trending issues in IP industry. It was one of those rare chances, when one may meet, talk, discuss, share and learn from different people from different countries. We hope to be back for future events.

P. Krishna Mohan - (Formar Global Director of Licensing at E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Co.)
The WIPF Conference is an excellent forum to meet and network with recognized experts in all aspect of intellectual property. Attending the presentations and speaker panels are also a wonderful way to share information and learn new techniques in the IP space being used in other parts of the world. All in all, an outstanding and professionally organized event that is a "can't miss" for any IP practitioner.
This year, for the first time I have participated in the World Intellectual Property Forum. I have learned a lot, met interesting people and have enjoyed the event particular also because of its excellent organization, beyond the material contents.
Great location-great program-great people! An excellent opportunity to catch up on latest’s trends in IP and at the same time have the opportunity to discuss topics in an informal setting with IP professionals from around the globe.
Excellent conference. Attracts top practitioners and corporate counsel from around the world. Excellent networking opportunities. Well-organized and some of the panels were particularly informative. Great production values.
The 2018 WIPF event was well organized; the organizers deserve a BIG applause. The topics for the panels at the 2018 WIPF covered multiple facets of IP. I wish the organizers to organize an even more successful event at Taipei in 2019 which I am looking forward to attending. One suggestion that I have for the 2019 program is to hold a one-day course on “Comparative Patent Law in China, India, Taiwan and the US
I have had the opportunity to speak at the WIPF for several years and I saw the conference grow and improve on a regular basis. The level of the speakers and topics are very good. In addition, the conference provides a great opportunity for networking and developing business opportunities.
The WIPF 2018 was the best IP legal assemblage that I have attended till date. The level of discussions were at a high level and the networks built were far more than just exchange of pleasantries. I think the WIPF 2018 was a perfect mix of IP lawyers, researchers, academicians, service providers and therefore it went on to be the success that it is.
I had a really great time, made a number of new friends and learned a lot. The sessions (panel discussions) were very informative on the current IP topics and intellectually stimulating. I am very grateful for the opportunity to meet the senior IP Professionals and colleagues and look forward to attending future events. I wish the WIPF team a hearty congratulation in organizing the wonderful event.
It was a pleasure to take part in such an organized and well thought out conference. The conference combined interesting topics and speakers, and allowed for plenty of networking with local and international participants. Looking forward to WIPF 2019.
It was the first time I attended WIPF and it was an enriching experience in all aspects. Academically, I was able to learn and deepen in several topics of intellectual property and in labor issues, knowing colleagues from different countries with the opportunity to increase the field of work of my firm.
I appreciate the perspicuity and kindness of young, innovative and energetic organizers’ team led by Agarwals- Navin (~Novel) and Jeet (~Victorious)- for providing me rights to admission in the inclusive domain of legal practitioners and adjudicators in the 6th edition of WIPF. It gave an opportunity to centre-stage the need of evolving the legal IP realm @ sociological school of jurisprudence in the developing economies as well as utilizing equity principles that exist in the spirit of GI law simultaneously.
“The WIPF conferences are consistently well organized. The organizers are very professional and do a stellar job whether the conference is located in India or abroad. It was a pleasure to moderate and lead some of the educational sessions to a receptive and engaged audience - on the latest and most pressing IP issues of the day along with other knowledgable IP experts from around the world.”
