A Message from the IACC President
Every year, we look forward to connecting with our global IP partners, practitioners and friends to network and share best practices in the fight against fakes. Unfortunately, the global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) means that we've had to stop large-gatherings to prevent further spread of the virus. For that reason, we have made the difficult decision to postpone all our conferences until 2021.
