INTA is coming full speed ahead to India. After several years of sponsoring Roundtable sessions in various sites in India, INTA has announced that, for the first time, it will be sponsoring a full-scale programme, to take place on February 12, 2011, in Mumbai, focusing on trade mark and branding issues within the Indian context. Entitled "Trademark Trailblazers in India", the full-day programme will feature speakers from India and various other countries. This looks like a great opportunity to meet leading trade mark and branding professionals in India as well as to join in the expected lively give and take between speakers and audience on cutting-edge issues. And naturally there is all of India to enjoy either before or after the programme, details of which can be found here.
