Now in its fifth year, the IP Dealmakers Forum has quickly become the most anticipated IP event of the year. This definitive gathering of complex intellectual property transactions experts and public and private market investors is capped at 200, with attendance reserved for a select number of top global IP market participants. Attendees have ample opportunities to connect, exchange information and best practices, and, most importantly, further dealmaking during our signature one-to-one meetings.





what our attendees say

  • “The IP Dealmakers Forum combined great speaker panels with outstanding networking opportunities -- both in the form of one-to-one meetings and free-form networking events. A cut above other events in the IP space.”

    Alan E. Guy, Investment Director, Vannin Capital
  • “This is one of the best conferences in which I have participated during my more than four-decade career focused on IP, including my 30 years on the federal bench. The speakers were top of the line, and the panel discussions were highly educational. The topics were timely, and the format provided great networking and one-on- one opportunities. The whole program was well organized, efficiently run, informative and useful.”

    Hon. James Holderman, Chief District Judge (Ret.)

    Rory Radding, Partner, Locke Lord
  • “The size of the conference is perfect, it enabled me to get in front of and talk with the people that I had targeted ahead of time. Easily the most impactful conference from a networking perspective that I have ever been to.”

    Scott Haiges, CEO, Digital Harmonic
  • “IP Dealmakers attracts the kind of people and discusses the kind of IP related topics that really matter. I was impressed by the number of high caliber speakers, and the topics covered. The presentations often stimulated lively high quality discussions among attendees. The one-to-one meeting setup is a really efficient way to meet new and existing contacts. This was all about real money and real issues.”
