Lisbon System Webinars

February 2, 2021

We are launching our first ever series of webinars on the Lisbon System for the international registration and protection of geographical indications. The webinars will guide you on how to file and manage effectively your international geographical indication registration and explore the legal and socio-economic advantages of protecting and commercializing geographical indications.

We will be releasing 3 webinar modules (in English, French and Spanish) which will take place live, giving you the chance to interact directly with WIPO experts and get answers to your questions.

Registration is now open for the first two sessions on February 16 and March 9, 2021.
