Event description

Description

Protecting your intellectual property is essential for any designer, but it’s so easy to forget about it when you’re focused on creating products you’re proud of. We’ve brought together regional IP experts, including Ward Hadaway Law Firm, intellectual property specialists HGF, Business & IP Centre Newcastle and the Intellectual Property Office, to help you to understand what you need to know to identify, utilise and protect your IP in the areas of fashion and design and the creative industries, and of product design and manufacture.

We begin the morning with a short introduction to IP and the services of the UK Intellectual Property Office, follwed by bespoke workshops run simulataneously; Fashion designers, retailers and general creatives will benefit from ‘IP in Fashion and Creative Industries’ whilst Product designers and manufacturers will find ‘IP in Product Design and Manufacture’ meets their needs.

Together with ample time to network, this is a great opportunity to learn from and get free advice from a number of local IP experts and services.
