The International Trademark Association (INTA) each autumn gathers its members for a four-day conference – the Leadership Meeting. This year the conference was held on November 6-9 in New Orleans, USA. Managing partner of Synergy” IP Law Agency Viktoriia Ostapchuk as a member of INTA and the INTA Copyright Committee also attended the event.

Against the backdrop of the carelessness of beautiful New Orleans, the conference was very productive. A rich educational program was prepared for the participants with a wide choice of topics dedicated not only to the latest trends in trademark protection, but also to issues of advanced training for in-house and private practice lawyers. Specialized committees meetings were conducted to discuss their strategies and plans. Viktoriia used an excellent opportunity for meetings with partners and colleagues from different countries during the Meeting as well. At the same time, New Orleans allowed some rest from hard work and left a very positive impression, capturing with its warm weather, cheerful character, unique atmosphere of relaxation and lightness.

Thanks INTA for the excellent organization and look forward to the next meeting in Boston, at the INTA Annual Meeting 2019.
