Dear Colleagues,
It is our utmost privilege and pleasure for the APAA Taiwan Group to host the 70th Council Meeting of the Asian Patent Attorney Association in Taipei for the year of 2019, also celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the APAA.
The meeting will take place at the Grand Hyatt Taipei, Taipei International Convention Center, Le Méridien Taipei and Humble House Taipei in Xinyi District (near Taipei 101). Taipei is a city of contrasts and combinations. Local and global cultures live side by side, with a wide array of nearby cultural and creative sites and culinary choices all the way from traditional street food to world-class fine dining.
The APAA 2019, scheduled for 9 to 12 November, will be an opportunity for all participants to explore a wide range of IP hot topics presented in committee meetings, workshops, and networking. Attendees will also be able to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of Taiwan on a series of specially planned excursions to nearby Taipei Metropolis.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the APAA 2019 Council Meeting in Taipei!
