Largest Trademark Event of The Year Goes to Washington D.C.

  (April 18, 2012)

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2012

From Saturday, May 5 through Wednesday, May 9, 9,000 delegates from around the world will convene in Washington, D.C., where they will exchange information and ideas on hot-button issues facing the global trademark community.

The International Trademark Association (INTA), a member-based organization dedicated to the support and advancement of trademarks, will hold its 134th Annual Meeting at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Attendees will participate in educational sessions, networking events and discussion forums that will cover a host of topics from indigenous rights to ambush marketing.

Attendees will hear from some of the worlds most respected legal minds on topics spanning the entire spectrum of international trademark law, said 2012 INTA President, Gregg Marrazzo, who is also the Senior Vice President & Deputy General Counsel at The Estée Lauder Companies. I am confident that they will find the information shared at this meeting to be immediately useful in their work for clients.


The Annual Meetings keynote address on Monday, May 7 will be delivered by Leonard A. Lauder, Chairman Emeritus of The Estèe Lauder Companies. Mr. Lauder joined the Company in 1958, and under his leadership, the Company expanded its business internationally and through acquisitions of other well-known brands, including Aveda, Bobbi Brown and MAC. Today, The Estèe Lauder Companies has more than 25 brands under its umbrella and does business in over 150 countries.

We are extremely pleased to have Mr. Lauder deliver our keynote address, said Alan C. Drewsen, INTA Executive Director. Mr. Lauder has been a longtime leader in the world of brands. The attendees will enjoy hearing about how the Company has used its trademarks to build a global brand powerhouse.
