We are pleased to accept proposals for sessions for the LES 2024 Annual Meeting, “Better Living Through Intellectual Property – Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler.” The meeting will be held in New Orleans, LA, on October 20-23.
Proposals are due March 1, 2024.
Proposals for the 2024 Annual Meeting should be directed to topics that are true to the theme of the program — that is, topics of practical significance for IP & licensing professionals. Through your submissions and those of others, we are planning a program that will enable the meeting attendees to expand their knowledge and share experiences with regards to issues confronting the licensing professional in the current environment.
Session types and topics. Panels, workshops, and interactive discussions will make up the content of the meeting. Expanding on the theme of the meeting, Better Living Through Intellectual Property, please feel free to submit a proposal directed to one of these topics:
