Europe Asia Patent Information Conference, Singapore, 4-5 March 2004

In an age of rapid technological change, where intellectual assets are the engines of continued growth, you have to constantly be up-to-date on the latest developments just to keep pace with your competitors.

Patents are hidden wealth of information - of technical know-how, of new developments, of potential markets to be explored.

Think of patent databases as untapped gold mines. Patents contain a detailed explanation of a particular technology, of what it can achieve and what has been developed before. Dig even deeper and considerable information on future markets, competitors and potential business partners can certainly be gained.

  • Bring together professionals on patent information to share their experiences and ideas;
