Conference Details

IACC's 2017 Spring Conference was a huge success with almost 400 participants from over 40 countries in attendance. Voluntary collaboration was a main focus at the Spring Conference. Attendees had the chance to hear from law enforcement and intermediaries during intimate roundtable discussions, and workshops were provided to those interested in learning more about IACC's newest partnership program with Alibaba Group, the IACC MarketSafe Expansion Program.

The Conference's keynote speakers addressed the need for brands to work closely with other entities, particularly government agencies, to fight fakes. Our conference keynote speaker, Ms. Piedad Alvarez de Arriba, Chief Commissioner of the Central Department of Specialized Crime of the Judicial Police, provided valuable insight into the enforcement initiatives of the Judicial Police including the success of several key IP enforcement operations.

Mr. Josep Carles Llagostera, Principal Customs Administrator of the Barcelona El-Prat Airport, spoke as the conference Friday keynote speaker. He described the Barcelona customs actions and importance placed on stopping counterfeits. He also welcomed and called for increased assistance and collaboration from rights-holders to fight against counterfeiting.

In addition to keynote speeches, attendees also benefited from an agenda that covered nearly all aspects of the anti-counterfeiting industry, including emerging technologies, tracking online counterfeiters, and creative solutions to combatting counterfeiting.

Conference networking receptions gave participants the opportunity to conduct business for both their own companies and for the greater anti-counterfeiting community. 

The IACC Fall Conference will be held in Marina del Rey, California on October 18-20, 2017. More details will be available on the IACC Fall Conference Page.
