The Industrial Property Office (IPO) is one of the central authorities of the state administration of the Czech Republic and besides the functions of the patent and trademark office it performs also the functions of a special information centre of industrial property. The IPO deals with education of the public in the area of industrial rights by way of e-learning courses and regular seminars.
The stand of the Industrial Property Office will offer its visitors a possibility of getting familiar also with the information about the Visegrad Patent Institute (VPI), which is an intergovernmental organisation for cooperation in the field of patent protection and which started its activities on 1 July 2016. The VPI Establishment Treaty was made by the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.
At the stand, the visitors will find also other information on protection of industrial rights and on national and foreign information databases of industrial rights, which the IPO makes accessible on its web site, together with presentations of how to find there various information about the state-of-the-art technology.
Visitors can discuss various issues connected with the sector of industrial rights as well.
We have already started preparing an attractive accompanying programme – lectures and seminars will be taking place throughout the four days the exhibition is held, in the Congress Hall (capacity of 650 people) as well as in three smaller conference rooms. The very first day, 9 May 2016, you will be able to attend LEADERS OF CZECH EXPORT, an event focused on export, attended by top representatives of the government. The 3rd ENERGO SUMMIT, a leading event of the energy sector, will take place on Thursday, 11 May 2016. Its main topics this year will be SMART ENERGY and ELECTROMOBILITY. Fans of 3D technologies will certainly aprreciate 3Dexpo, the largest 3D conference and exhibition in the Czech Republic.
Most manufacturers complain about the lack of skilled technical workers. PRAGUE INDUSTRIAL TRADE FAIRS aim to interconnect the demand with the offer in its newly introduced sector FOR JOBS, an exhibition of job vacancies in industry. You will get informed soon about other events planned for PRAGUE INDUSTRIAL TRADE FAIRS.
Dear exhibitors, current and future ones. There are many changes made in the upcoming INDUSTRIAL TRADE FAIRS. Why? Because you know about our trade fairs, but you do not take part in it. Our aim is to improve the quality and turnout of the event. This is why we decided to go for a new strategy which we call INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION 5.0. What does this term refer to? We will increase the number of professional visitors and exhibitors, we will actively approach visitors from the sectors of power engineering, machinery, automotive, logistics, etc. We will also cooperate with relevant associations, we will negotiate provision of auspices and support by state institutions and we will enhance marketing campaigns in the form of advertisement, interviews, articles, billboards, banners, PPC campaigns. Do you want to know more? We will be glad to introduce our vision personally. Contact our managers.
