INTA – International Trademark Association Annual and Leadership Meetings

“You have been a wonderful partner with INTA for all of these years.”

Tricia S. Simpson CMP, Manager, Meetings, Conventions & Events Strategy, INTA, New York.

We have been sending British delegates to The Annual Meeting for over 40 years, starting when it when it was originally the USTA. For those not familiar with us, here is a brief outline of the service we provide to those Trademark Attorneys attending the Annual Meeting.

A year ahead we visit each host city to check out any changes and conduct a site visit to the official hotels. While here we also investigate pre and post conference ideas, plus interesting venues for receptions and entertaining. We then make a small selection of hotels that we feel are the most appropriate, based on convenience and price, but to also offer a portfolio of differing styles. For a over a decade INTA have kindly provided us with an allocation of rooms at the official hotels. Our program is launched in December, the brochure contains maps; an overview of the conference location; impartial reviews of the hotels featured; travel options with a price guide and ideas if you have a few days spare. In addition there is an information sheet available on unusual reception and entertainment venues, plus a list of restaurants in the city with a few recommendations.

November’s Leadership Meeting (Mid Year) is usually held in the sun belt of Florida or Arizona, but there have been surprises such as Panama, Central America. In 2018 it will be in New Orleans. We can assist with flights and also accommodation if you are not able to book into the official hotels.
