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 conference provided us an opportunity to interact with the people who are well experienced and belongs to well known IP Law Firms. It was a great experience to interact with such people. The event was managed very well. Kudos to the WIPF team"
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.
I am very grateful to the organizers for the high level of preparation and conducting the 5th edition of World Intellectual Property Forum in Dubai. It was a memorable event which left remarkable impressions. I had an excellent opportunity to get the precious and interesting experience from the honoured speakers at the interactive sessions which I will be able to use for my business development. I was very glad to see again my colleagues and friends as well as to meet and communicate with new interesting people in the professional and friendly atmosphere of the Forum.

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.
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.
“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.”
The World IP Forum assembled a top notch group of international IP thought leaders, skilled practitioners, and corporate representatives from all over the world to discuss how to best motivate and protect innovation. The ability to discuss IP Strategy in a global context with practitioners with experience in so many different jurisdictions was amazing. The level of quality in both the participants and the discussions was amaxing and the organizers of the World IP Forum should be commended for it.
WIPF 2019 in Taipei has been extremely interesting, indeed. I have learned a lot from my co-speakers as well as other moderators, and I am looking forward to a next event to take place in a hopefully not too distant future, be it in India, be it elsewhere!
WIPF 2019 was an absolute delight. The best part of the Forum was the intense discussions that you get to experience by some great global IP leaders. Also, the forum was a good mix of World participants and therefore interacting with them was fun. This year I presented a talk alongside speakers from USA & Canada which was a brilliant experience. I will continue to attend this forum as it’s one of a kind and you take back so much with you in just three days of being there. The best part of it all is the WIPF Team which makes your time at the forum all together more interesting.
The World Intellectual Property Forum continues to be an essential event for anyone working in the global Intellectual Property field. Each event features cutting edge tips on handling IPR around the world in addition to recent development in courts and government regulations. WIPF is always a rewarding experience, being incredibly well-run and offering ample opportunity to network with other professionals.
Very well organised conference for international IP experts! As a moderator of a panel discussion in the 2019 edition of the World IP Forum I thoroughly enjoyed the valuable insights from a globally composed panel of patent litigators and licensing experts. Hope to have another opportunity to attend this conference in the near future.
Participating in the World IP Forum in Taipei has been a great opportunity to share with great professionals and experts, and to know the different points of view, which allows us to understand more easily that diversity in globality leads us to great advances.
I would like to thank you so much for conducting the most wonderful Conference early this November and for your great efforts to make it happen. It was a fruitful and amazing time for me and all colleagues from many parts of the world. WIPF was very interesting and stimulating for me, in terms of its contents, the organization aspects and beautiful sights of Taipei. Wishing you all the best and seeing you at the next WIPF.

Chanakya Jayadeva - (Attorney-at-Law & President at Entertainment Media and Sports Law Firm )
I was so honored to participate on the Virtual Webinar of WIPF on 2020.Like every edition it was a great opportunity to share knowledge on an area my area of Entertainment Law. Having been a part of WIPF since 2018 onwards what I saw in WIPF is its uniqueness. Every year a unique program which touches upon areas in IP no other conference does and the speeches & presentations made by the best in the world in the subject. Then the meticulous planning with attention to specific details. The Conference is held as a classy production! It also gives the participants a great opportunity not only to get a wealth of knowledge but also to meet & network with the best in the industry! Looking forward to being a part of many more WIPF Conferences to come!
“Rarely do conferences check all the boxes, and then some more. The body of corporate professionals , litigators, academics, inventors from India and abroad at the Bengaluru edition of the WIPF (2023) was impressive and exceeded expectations. Making new friends, meeting old ones, and learning from very insightful sessions and discussions - all under one roof. Great planning and execution”
It was a wonderful experience to be part of WIPF, meeting IP leaders from different organizations and law firms. I enjoyed sharing my views and thoughts with other eminent leaders in my panel discussion. Many of the discussions and talks were on the recent IP topics and issues. Overall the event was great and useful!! Kudos and Thanks to the organizers !!
Thanks Navin and Jeet for organising WIFP Bengaluru 2023 on such a massive scale. Everything was so well organised. Met and interacted with very interesting IP professionals. Session topics were very relevant and speakers were very knowledgable.
Navin and Jeet, you'll have created a beautiful platform for the IP fratenity in India. Being a first time participant, I was nothing but spellbound to see the potential of learnings and connections - both of this being the core for any professional growth. WIPF gave me a good exposure globally alongside meeting the industrial experts was a cherry on the cake. The USP of your event was that of having all the stakeholders in the field of IP being present for 4 days and exchanging experience, knowledge and network. Great job!
I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the incredible experience I had at WIPF 2023 in Bangalore. It was truly an exceptional event for us at Audiri Vox.
The content was diverse, informative, and engaging, and I felt like learning and contributing to the industry from my personal level. I was glad to see the full house during my talk on UAE Patent Law as I'm always on the lookout for opportunities to learn and grow, and your conference met my expectations.
On a personal level, the conference was a much-needed break from my day-to-day routine. It was a chance to step back and reflect on my work and my goals, to gain new perspectives and inspiration, and to recharge my batteries. I left feeling reinvigorated and excited about what the future holds.
So once again, I just wanted to express my gratitude for all of the hard work and dedication that went into planning and executing this conference. Thank you for creating a valuable and me
It was an excellent platform for exchanging ideas and insights on Intellectual Property. The sessions were informative and engaging, covering a wide range of topics with great speakers and panel discussions. Overall, the event was well-organized and provided a great platform for learning and sharing knowledge.
Honoured to chair the panel discussion as a speaker and had an opportunity to share my perspective on "Global Mechanism in Protection of Traditional Knowledge". Many thanks to entire organising team of WIPF-2023 for hosting wonderful event, which always remain as memorable experience in our journey . Indeed, it was great platform to learn and network with eminent IP professionals from Industry, Law firm and Academia. Hope to see many more great events in future
I really enjoyed participating in WIPF 2023. The four days was filled with interesting panels with gamut of latest happening on IP, along with positive networking opportunities and purposeful interactions. Listening to experts from different industries definitely enriched my knowledge on IP. WIPF is the place to be.
The 11th edition of WIPF Bangalore 2023 was a mix of informal and formal meetings and discussions, in many cases a reunion of old colleagues. The panel discussions were informative and friendly; and the audience whole-heartedly participated in them. At a time when our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modiji mentioned in his “Mann ki Baat” that India ranked seventh in patent filing and fifth overall in trademarks globally, and further that in the Global Innovation Index, India's ranking has improved tremendously reaching the 40th position, showing the growing scientific prowess of the country; such forums like WIPF encouraging scientific discussions, inventions and IP are very much the need of the hour.
WIPF was a fun reunion with learning; and we look forward to more such editions of WIPF in future.
