It’s Your IP. Keep It That Way

Wednesday 11th July: 15.00 - 15.45 : Room 1

Creating original IP is hard. We all know that. But how you exploit it, value it, monetise it, and perhaps most importantly, how you protect it, are critical if you want to give your IP the best chance of success.  Come and hear from this expert panel - chaired by Will Freeman, who will share their advice and experiences of how to get the most out of your IP and keeping it safe along the way.  

Keynote: Rami & Mike One on One

Thursday 12th July: 10.30 - 11.00 : Room 2

Industry trailblazers Mike Bithell and Rami Ismail have both had great success and are out spoken industry champions. This intimate fireside chat will let them discuss their experiences over the last few years, tell you what pit falls to avoid and discuss what they think about the future.  This session should be full of entertaining insights and valuable lessons.  They'll answer a few questions from attendees too.
