Looking Back on Madrid System Webinars 2023

December 19, 2023

It’s been an eventful year in terms of Madrid System webinars. We’ve been lucky enough to interact with more than 7,700 of you from all over the world during our 53-strong event program, spanning eight languages.

Graphic showing that we held 53 webinars in 8 languages, with 7,791 attendees and 840 questions asked

This year more than ever, you have been essential co-creators of our webinar program. Thanks to your input, we’ve been able to tailor many of our events to meet your specific requirements.

Thank you all – from beginners to advanced users – for your active participation!

Just some of the highlights

Your favorite webinars in 2023

The star event this year was without doubt our new webinar on Transformation and Replacement – just one of the topics that you specifically requested! In the English version alone, we welcomed 440 of you, answering almost 100 questions during the live Q&A session! Did you miss out on this event? Access the video recording!

Your other clear favorites were our eMadrid-related webinars. Presented in seven languages, more than 3,000 of you tuned into these events which provided everything from a basic overview of our online services to deep dives into features of Madrid Monitor! Keep your requests coming for Madrid System tools and services that you would like us to cover in our webinars. We will more than happy to walk you through them!

By popular request…

We received numerous requests from you to cover trademark examination procedures in specific Intellectual Property Offices.

Did you know? The United Kingdom (UK) has been the most designated Madrid System Member for two years in a row now, with more than 30,000 designations in 2022.

Not surprising perhaps that this time round, we focused on the UK Intellectual Property Office (UK IPO). In October, we joined forces with experts from the UK IPO, to look at how best to avoid provisional refusals. What better way to learn than to get insightful tips directly from national experts? Didn’t manage to join? Check out the video recording!

Webinars for SMEs

We introduced a brand-new webinar series in Spring 2023, dedicated to small business owners who are just starting to discover the world of intellectual property. Delivered in six languages – English, French Spanish, Russian, Japanese, and Korean – this series provided tips and insights into keeping up with the competition and taking a business to the next level, by launching its products and services on overseas markets.
