LES International Annual Conference 2015

10 April 2015 09:00 to 15 April 2015 14:00

LES Benelux has been selected to host the LES International Annual Conference 2015 in Brussels, Belgium from 10–15 April. We expect to welcome around 400 IP specialists, executives, decision makers and opinion leaders from all around the world. As the capital city of European policy making and corporate affairs, and as a central hub within Europe, Brussels offers participants an attractive forum and many opportunities to combine this conference with other business meetings. All board members and the members of the Program and Organizing Committee 2015 are very excited about this major event, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of LES Benelux. We are committed to make it a landmark success.

The theme of the conference will be ‘Creating value in tomorrow's smart economy - towards 2020 and beyond’. Speakers from the European Commission, WIPO, OHIM and EPO committed themselves to be present as well as speakers from large multinational companies such as Philips, Cisco, Airbus, GE, Verizon, Nokia, Alstron and UCB. Moreover, the prestigious LESI Global Technology Forum (GTIF) 2015 is included into the conference.

The conference will be held in the Steigenberger Grandhotel in Brussels. Two major networking events are scheduled: the Monday evening dinner will be held in the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts, including a guided tour through the museum, and a fabulous farewell dinner on Wednesday evening that will be held at the Steigenberger Grandhotel. Furthermore exciting tours inside and outside Brussels will be organized as well as pre-conference and past-conference tours (e.g. Paris, Amsterdam, Düsseldorf).

It is therefore very important to fully benefit of the conference and not to miss the early registration deadline of 2nd November 2014. You can find all information at

Finally, several sponsors have already agreed to collaborate financially. Of course more sponsors are very welcome. Just contact the secretariat at for more information.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you next year in Beautiful Brussels in Belgium.

With kind regards,

On behalf of the LESI2015 Organizing and Program Committee

Jean-Christophe Troussel, president LES Benelux 2012-2015
