IP Publishers' and Editors' Lunch 2015: at last, the details!

Every year it is the pleasure of the IPKat to invite his friends, colleagues, informants and competitors in the intellectual property media sector to join him for a get-together at which matters of mutual interest are discussed in a friendly and informal atmosphere.   This year is no exception, and it is the pleasure of longstanding Katfriend and intellectual property enthusiast Serena Tierney to offer us a congenial central London venue for this year's meeting.

The date of this year's meeting is Wednesday 25 November and the venue is the London office of law firm Veale Wasbrough Vizards in the historical setting of Barnards Inn, London.  Registration starts at 12.15 pm for a 12.30 pm to 2.30 pm meeting. A thoroughly enjoyable buffet lunch will be served.  Serena will be in the chair and this year's guest speaker, solicitor Peter Groves (CJ Jones Solicitors LLP). Peter has a long record of editorial and contributorial experience with both IP and non-IP titles, as well as being a blogger in his own right.  IPKat blogmeister and JIPLP editor Jeremy Phillips will conclude the formal proceedings with a few words of his own.

The meeting is open to anyone who is an online or print media intellectual property editor, publisher, information provider, press officer or an IP blogger or event manager -- and also to anyone who is considering a career change that will bring him or her within one of these categories.  If you are not sure if you should be there, email Jeremy who will discuss your eligibility to attend.  If you have attended this event in the past, you will need little convincing of its importance and utility. If you haven't, it can provide you with a golden chance to speak to others who are doing similar work, or whose activity complements your own.

Apart from the usual niceties, those who attend will be asked what direction this group should take in future years. In particular, should its title and functions be amended in order to reflect the fact that online information exchange and interactive user-generated IP analysis has to a large extent replaced more traditional forms of IP publishing?

To register, just email Romany at events@vwv.co.uk.  The meeting is free to attend.
