INTA Latin American session

The 132nd Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association takes place in Boston, Mass., from 23 to 26 May. From the programme (which you can view in full here) it can be seen that the Latin American session ("Regional Update – South America") takes place on Tuesday 25 May from 3.30pm to 4.45pm.

Last year I attended the Latin American session and was greatly impressed with the quality of the presentations and the amount of hard work that had gone into their preparation. I was also dismayed at the fact that this session was held in a vast, cavernous room that could have accommodated a couple of thousand people and which was almost empty.

I plan to attend the corresponding session this year and hope that as many readers of this blog who are coming to Boston will be at this session too. If we want people to believe that what's going on in this politically and economically volatile region is important, they're not going to believe us if we don't bother to turn up ourselves.
