About this Event

Converging and rapidly evolving technologies are disrupting a range of industries. Fintech, AI, Big Data, 3D Printing, Automation, Deep Learning, VR, IoT and more are already having a significant impact on industries as diverse as pharma, finance, automotive, food, energy, retail, TNT and industrials. This dynamic environment creates significant opportunities for innovative companies. Yet, it also brings significant competitive challenges in growing and driving such businesses towards exit.  The LES B&I IP Strategy Committee will host an informal and highly interactive roundtable workshop in which we will jointly explore the role that Innovation and Intellectual Property can play in successfully capitalising on the opportunities, and navigating the challenges, created by these market conditions.

Who Should Attend and Why

This event is tailored specifically for senior executives responsible for innovation and IP. The workshops will encourage active participation, debate and sharing of experiences across industries as the core learning experience. The evening will focus on identifying the most relevant and effective Innovation and IP strategies to enable organisations to build business value while responding to the main drivers of industry disruption, such as converging technologies, new and agile competition, regulatory changes and variations in market dynamics. The format of the workshops will provide an opportunity to quickly get to know other colleagues with subsequent networking opportunities over drinks.
