For those of you looking to visit an exotic, and easy to travel to location to hear the latest on patent information tools, the recently announced Information Tools for IP & Intelligence meeting may be just the event for you.
The Information Tools for IP & Intelligence meeting will be held in Singapore on March 26-27, and is billed as being a “Showcase and Conference”. The showcase element comes from the six meeting sponsors, who will talk about their patent, and IP products in the context of benefits to patent professionals. The “conference” element comes from a panel of international speakers who will talk on various aspects of patents, tools and intelligence.
