Andreea Bende attends the 36th edition of the annual meeting of MARQUES, a reference event for the intellectual property professionals’ community

MARQUES is the European association representing the interests of brand owners since 1986. The 2022 edition of its annual meeting is expected to bring together, in a physical set-up, representatives from across 81 counties, globally. The event reflects the theme selected by the organizers: Celebrating Marks.

The sessions of the conference will tackle a variety of topics that concern the brand owners and those offering adjacent services, with a particular aim of addressing, and, ideally, answering the question on “how sustainability and new technologies will shape the future of brands”. These are structured in panels titled:

  • The impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain on trademarks
  • Towards a digital jurisdiction
  • Sustainability in the spotlight
  • How brands respond to external disruption
  • Beyond reality: deepfakes, avatars and other creatures
  • Branding alternative products?
  • Judicial approaches to parasitic competition
  • CJUE and General Court case update

Andreea Bende, Partner and head of the firm’s trademarks practice, will represent SIMION & BACIU during this highly anticipated event that will take place in Madrid, Spain, from 20 to 23 September 2022.

  • Will you be attending MARQUES? 
  • Not in Madrid during that time, but are interested in a discussion on the topics addressed during the conference?

Andreea would be pleased to connect before, during or after #MARQUES and share her expert views on the takeaways of this year’s event, and more.
