Join us for a Facilitated Roundtable Discussion.

We all can get excited about the opportunity to commercialize a truly game changing technology--maybe even a broad industrial platform technology with core applications important to our business as well as opportunities for licensing into other applications. They just don't come around that often. If you have been there, come share what you have done, what you liked and what you might do differently. If you haven't been there yet, join the discussion to get some ideas to be better prepared when YOUR opportunity arises.

Come join your area colleagues, contribute, participate and invest in forging a community that serves all of us in IP related endeavors.

We will allow some time for networking followed by an hour buffet lunch accompanied by our roundtable discussion. We are committed to deliver value in that time frame, but have an opportunity to continue discussions for those available and interested into the afternoon.

Space is limited. Early registration is recommended.

Dress is business causal.

A buffet lunch is included.
