Why Attend

The Premier Intellectual Property and Licensing Event

We understand.

  • Your office budget is tight.
  • You have work deadlines.
  • Your boss can’t part with you for three days.

So why should you come to Phoenix in October for the LES Annual Conference?
Attending the LES Annual Meeting is a sound investment for your company and your career.

This is the premier event for the intellectual capital community. The LES Annual Meeting attracts a diverse group of 600+ decision makers and thought leaders in the IP space for conversations about innovation, the evolving licensing field and the future of Intellectual Capital Management. We want you there to represent your company and your expertise.

Practical Education. The world of licensing is constantly evolving, so it is critical to stay ahead of the curve. Whether you’re just starting out in the field or have 30 years of experience, there’s always more to know to be competitive. The LES 2019 Annual Meeting has 31 – count ’em 31—content-rich sessions with 100 speakers – designed to provide you with strategies and tactics you can use right away. You’ll leave Phoenix inspired to take on the latest innovation challenges.

Boundless Networking. At #LESAM2019, our community of innovators, attorneys, intellectual capital management professionals, and generally overall great people will connect in Phoenix.
