-- New York, NY – The American Conference Institute (ACI), an organization dedicated to producing conferences in the legal sector, recently announced the creation of a new event, The Green Technology Intellectual Property Summit. Being held in Chicago on June 27 – 29, 2012, the Summit is generating buzz in the green tech space, a phenomenon ACI Division Manager Stephanie Butler owes to its prescient marriage of numerous IP-related topics. “The green technology space is mushrooming,”
said Butler, “but until now there hasn’t been a conference that helps green tech executives address the issues surrounding their IP, which, really, is their most valuable asset by far.”
The Summit will feature sessions on not only the nuts-and-bolts aspects of protecting green technology patents, but also has experts covering the business decisions that are driven by a green tech company’s IP portfolio. Patent valuation, building a business strategy that ensures maximum exploitation of IP assets, and generating revenue streams with smart licensing strategies are just some of the ways attendees will leave this event with a fuller understanding of how to use their best assets.
That broad approach, Butler says, is what is making the Green Technology Intellectual Property Summit such a hot new conference. As she put it, “people are interested in this conference because it drills down into specific topics without getting bogged down in any one subject. In just two days you can learn about dealing with the PTO directly from a PTO examiner, better ways to raise capital from an investment and commercialization expert, and how to conduct an effective, compliant green marketing campaign. People respond to that blend of breadth and specificity, and the enthusiasm for this event is proof.”
