Another Successful Meeting! 

The AIPLA 2013 Annual Meeting was a huge success, with attendance close to 2,200 -- surpassing last year!

Highlights of the meeting included a luncheon presentation by the Honorable Teresa Stanek Rea, Deputy Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office, and a one-on-one conversation between the Honorable Randall R. Rader, Chief Judge, US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and AIPLA's Executive Director, Q. Todd Dickinson.

Deputy Director Rea, and Dana Collaruli, USPTO Director, Governmental Affairs addressed the patent reform legislation released just two days prior to the meeting's start, so attendees heard the latest news on the legislation and its likelihood of passage.

Chief Judge Rader spoke about the recent Supreme Court's focus on patent cases, and his work at the Federal Circuit.  A thought-provoking session.

In addition, the meeting offered three tracks of CLE education each day, Committee Educational Sessions, committee meetings, and an exhibit featuring over 40 booths.
