The Practical Seminar on the Madrid System Returns
March 8, 2019
After a two-year hiatus, the Seminar on the Practical Aspects of the Madrid System makes a welcome return to Geneva on April 24 and 25, 2019.
Registration is now open for two days of in-depth training on the Madrid System – aimed at new and existing users, trademark owners or representatives.
What to expect
As before, this highly popular and hands-on masterclass focuses on a wide range of Madrid System processes and procedures, such as filing an international application and managing registrations. It also serves as a useful platform for participants to exchange knowledge and ideas, and provides a forum for feedback that will help us continuously improve and enhance the System for our fast-expanding user base.
WIPO speakers will give presentations on WIPO’s role in the Madrid System, cover some of the System’s recent developments, and introduce a range of new and improved online services. We will also explore the role of the Designated Contracting Party in some depth.
Moreover, our special guest speaker will be Mr. Gavin Stenton, Partner at Penningtons Manches LLP in the United Kingdom. Mr. Stenton will share his experiences in responding to refusals, and discuss issues relating to the United Kingdom.
Participants can register online before April 18, 2019. Allocation is on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, so register early to secure places.
The CHF 600 fee covers materials, lunches, and morning and afternoon teas.
How to pay
You can pay fees by bank transfer, WIPO Current Account or credit card. There are no refunds for cancellations received after Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
