The speakers were top of the line, and the panel discussions were highly educational. The topics were timely, and the format provided great networking and one-on-one opportunities. The whole program was well organized, efficiently run, informative and useful.

  • IP Dealmakers attracts the kind of people and discusses the kind of IP related topics that really matter. I was impressed by the number of high caliber speakers, and the topics covered. The presentations often stimulated lively high-quality discussions among attendees. The one-to-one meeting setup is a really efficient way to meet new and existing contacts. This was all about real money and real issues.
