Another INTA annual meeting has come and gone. And with over 11,000 registrants from 150 countries in attendance at this year’s Seattle, Washington location, it was the biggest annual meeting yet. This year’s attendance statistics included 2,674 first time attendees, 1,254 corporate members, and 275 officials. It’s estimated that the conference pumped $20 million dollars into Seattle’s economy and helped support 4,763 jobs in the area.
It’s hard to believe another year has gone by, but here we are again…it’s May and that means INTA is on our schedule for this month! While last year’s events took place in Barcelona, this year it’s a little closer to home for the AppDetex team, and we are looking forward to our upcoming trip to Seattle.
With over 300 educational sessions, 100+ committee, project team and Committee Meetings as well as 30+ networking receptions and 100+ exhibitors, it promises to be another intense and information packed five days! This year’s highlights will include a focus on new anti-counterfeiting measures, the effects of the upcoming GDPR changes, and a focus on the ever-evolving IP landscape. On top of that, there are new excursion opportunities as well as speed networking aimed at getting attendees out into the surrounding areas and mingling, and an epic opportunity to see Joan Jett live at the Saturday night concert.
