“IPI-ConfEx has matured over its seven years, into an event which is now widely considered the best of its kind in Europe: an occasion where patent information professionals from IPOs, commercial companies, vendor companies, small enterprises and one-man-bands can gather together and network, exchange views and learn from each other… This year’s ConfEx was a mix of the ‘traditional’ (presentations, vendor booths, discussion panels) and the new (tutorial and poster sessions), and provided a range of topics of interest to engage attendees… IPI-ConfEx continues to evolve and try new things [and]… keep engaging with IP professionals across the spectrum.”  On IPI-ConfEx 2011 “I’m sure the programme will be just as eclectic, the attendees just as varied, and the social interaction just as much fun.” Excerpt from Searcher, The Newsletter of the Patent and Trademark Group, Issue 125 (2010)
“Since our product launch a few years ago, we have, by far, had most of our business generated through contacts at IPI-ConfEx; the best patent information conference internationally.” IPI-ConfEx Sponsor Exhibitor
"Thanks. I can't remember a conference that I've attended that had as many high quality, informative presentations as this one. You should be very proud of the results of all the hard work that I know that you and the rest of the IPI staff had to put in to make the conference the success that it was." IPI-ConfEx Speaker
“In Europe, IPI-ConfEx offers broadest and most in-depth info regarding patent information.” IPI-ConfEx Attendee
"I am very happy that I had to chance to contribute to this great conference. The fact that this conference now is - without doubt - the top event for everybody in the field of patent information is definitely not just based on a few speakers, but on the strong overall program and the very good mixture of topics. So congratulations on bringing together the people and the topics. I do look forward to the next conference!" IPI-ConfEx Speaker
“Excellent event to see where the Commercial providers are heading, new developments, live testing in the exhibition. Gives the overall status quo.” IPI-ConfEx Attendee
“We need to stay up to date to offer best services to our clients. The conference was really suitable to mingle with people and to keep contacts. The presentations, workshops and sessions provided a lot of relevant information that will help to enhance our work.” IPI-ConfEx Sponsor Exhibitor
"Thank you very much for organising such an excellent conference.  There is always something new to learn. More importantly for me, it was an ideal opportunity to network with friends, peers, clients, former colleagues and database producers.  As many people observed, IPI-ConfEx is now the only forum in Europe where patent information people can get together and discuss developments and issues. As the conference is getting so popular, next year gatherings will be probably oversubscribed." IPI-ConfEx Attendee
