INTA: 2021 calendar of events

Today, the International Trademark Association (INTA) announced some events that will take place this year.

Etienne Sanz de Acedo (INTA’s CEO) emphasized that the agenda changes are innovative and critical because of the pandemic. Thus, they were made based on prioritizing the attendees’ health and safety.

Therefore, the “Trademark Administrators and Practitioners Meeting” will not be offered in 2021, and all conferences will be held online.

The Annual and Leadership Meetings will switch the usual time of the year.

Consequently, the Annual Meeting will not occur from 1 to 5 May in San Diego, California, as was expected. It will be held from 15 to 19 November in Houston (Texas, USA), and it will also include virtual programming.

Etienne also announced that the 2022 Annual Meeting will take place from 25 to 29 April 2022 in Singapore.

The 2021 calendar of events is the following:
