Networking

AM17-Networking_Header.jpg

One of the most significant benefits of AIPLA membership and Annual Meeting attendance is the opportunity to connect or reconnect with peers across the industry and around the global community of IP practitioners. 

Networking takes many forms at the Annual meeting. In the classrooms, on the exhibit floor, and throughout the hallways of the hotel, the networking takes on a easy, informal way. Our vast offering of breaks, lunches, and receptions offer a bit more formal environment for you to interface and exchange with colleagues. 

Leverage each of these opportunities to grow your trusted professional network.
