It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 12th AIPPI Baltic Conference that will be held in Jurmala, Latvia.

This international conference aims at bringing together practitioners from different fields and practice areas of Intellectual Property and sharing a common interest in latest developments, successful application of best practices and experiences and current IP policies. The conference will present an excellent opportunity to network with experts and practitioners in the field, establish contacts with new business partners and friends and enhance existing relationships.

We look forward to engaging and stimulating discussions in the relaxing atmosphere of Jurmala, a place that has been famed for centuries as a resort and seaside spa area.

The conference programme will provide an overview of the latest trends and issues faced by IP in the context of globalisation and new technologies. Leading experts and practitioners in the area of IP will present and share their insights during 12 sessions to be held on April 12 and 13.

The program of the Conference will not only provide you with enriching professional experience, it will also include enjoyable social events: a warm welcome reception hosted in Jurmala City Museum, a national themed evening inside the acclaimed and recently renovated Dzintari Concert Hall, a Gala dinner with a view of the calming Baltic sea and a compelling evening programme. The accompanying persons will have an opportunity to enjoy full-day sightseeing tours and indulging SPA treatments.
