HGF’s IP in Retail Conference London 2022

18th November 2022, 3:44 pm


HGF’s annual IP in Retail Conference will take place in London at St Paul’s (etc.venues) on the 1st December.


The world of retail has seen many changes over the past two years as we exit a global pandemic and still live in uncertain economic times. Technological and environmental themes increasingly impact the world of retail. Is the rise of the metaverse and NFTs a fad or will they have lasting impact on the world of retail? How does retail deal with the rise of environmental concerns and above all, how does intellectual property law fit into all of this?

At IP in Retail 2022, we consider the IP dimension of current trends and issues in the sector.

Sessions will include:

  • Circularity, recycling, upcycling and resale: the environment
  • Sustainability and innovation in the retail sector
  • Iceland vs Iceland: is it a trade mark, is it a place or is it both?
  • Innovation in the metaverse – protecting the tech in your sales of virtual products
  • NFTs and retail
  • Vertically and digitally challenged
  • Saddle bags and shape marks
