All IP colleagues can now register for the ECTA 39th Annual Conference ‘Waltzing with IP’ on 21/22 October, either in Vienna and online!

If you register as a non-member to attend the event on-site, you will also get the opportunity to join ECTA free of charge for the rest of 2021. If you are a member who has not signed up yet, secure your place fast at a reduced fee: on-site places will be allocated on a first come-first served basis until capacity is reached.

**ECTA Committee members kindly be reminded to be registered accordingly, irrespective of which attendance option you have chosen (1. On-site Conference in Vienna 2. Online Conference 3. Online Committee Meetings only).**

This year we have worked even harder to ensure a captivating programme! Thursday, 21 October will be fully dedicated to ECTA Supervisory Board and Committee meetings, whereas Friday, 22 October will be an immersive educational and networking day with most distinguished guests and speakers such as WIPO Director General Daren Tang, who will open the academic part of the Conference with a keynote speech. Besides, to evoke the original format of the ECTA’s Annual Conference, our usual Wednesday workshops will be offered exclusively online one week before the event on 13 October, as part of the ‘Conference package’. Consult the full schedule here!

On-site registrants are also invited to our usual Gala Dinner, organised in accordance with all safety protocols at the Museum of Applied Arts (MAK)! After a welcome drink, you will have the opportunity to visit the permanent exhibition, dedicated to the development of Viennese arts and crafts between 1890 and 1938. The dinner will be accompanied by jazz music and…an enchanting surprise!

Last, but not least, all registrants can navigate the virtual Attendee Hub from the beginning of October by receiving via email the link to access the platform. Here you will be able to browse the list of participants, exhibitors and media partners, exchange messages, join group discussions, consult the program and much more. During the event, the platform will deliver live broadcast quality viewing of all meetings and sessions to those attending virtually.

The health and safety of our Conference participants is ECTA’s main concern, therefore, our attendees will be required to strictly comply with all Austrian COVID-19 regulations (Austrian State, Federal Government or City of Vienna) at the time of registration and at the time of travelling and participating in the event. Austrian COVID-19 regulations are regularly updated here and here. In addition, participants may be required to provide proof of their Covid eligibility to enter Austria and to participate in the event, if requested on-site.

We are looking forward to welcoming many IP colleagues either in Vienna or online!
