Destination IP Virtual Summit Offers an Online Journey

This August, the Destination IP Virtual Summit gave participants a way to escape, while still at their desk. This online conference offered sixteen sessions covering relevant, practical intellectual property topics. Spread over two weeks, each day had the “theme” of a different relaxing location. Attendees could get away for a while, as they heard from more than thirty distinguished speakers. A virtual happy hour with the theme of a North Shore campfire finished up the second week. This online conference was a complimentary event.
