RACV Noosa Resort

The Annual Conference of FICPI Australia is to be held this year at the RACV Noosa Resort in Queensland.
The conference begins the evening of Friday 28 July and concludes on Sunday 30 with an optional tour day on Monday 31 July 2017.
The Annual General Meeting of the Association will be held on Sunday 30 July 2017 commencing at 11.30am.

The formal programme of the meeting is being finalised and will include topics relevant to all current FICPI members and attorneys generally.
This year, the speakers at the conference will present on:
- patent and trade mark insurance (for everyone)
- artificial intelligence (if you are willing to let go of old thinking)
- professional standards (beyond the Board)
- the productivity commission, and outsourcing (why arenít you doing it?).

Prospective FICPI members should be aware that an attorney (patent or trade mark) no longer needs to be an owner or principle of a firm. The Annual Conference is available to first time attendees who are not yet members, but who would like to experience one of the many benefits of FICPI membership.
We will provide registration forms, the agenda and support information very soon. They will be sent to members, distributed with the help of other organisations, and available on the FICPI website events page.
If you would like us to provide the membership or registration forms direct to you, please email a request to bill@madderns.com.au.

If you have any questions regarding a particular conference please go to the Contact Us and seek advice from the President or Secretary of FICPI Australia.
