|Around the World with LES|
In April 2015, the Licensing Executives Society (LES) celebrated Around the World in honor of World Intellectual Property (IP) Day. The month of events was a great opportunity for chapters to connect with the world of IP in their community!
Every year on April 26, LES partners with World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to officially recognize World IP Day. In honor of this day, LES chapters host coordinated events throughout the month of April to connect IP, licensing and business professionals, as well as entrepreneurially minded students, across the globe in an effort to move innovation forward. LES expanded its Around the World with LES celebration to encompass not only WIPO's World IP Day observance on April 26, but a full month of events around the globe.
In the past six years, LES has hosted more than 80 Around the World with LES events, with thousands of participants in several countries and local areas throughout the U.S. and Canada.
This year, Around the World events ranged from networking receptions and valuable education sessions, to career chats and hot topic discussions. The events were open to anyone, including non-members and students.
