Chong-Yee Khoo and Irene Low of Cantab IP will be attending the 140th Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association (INTA) in Seattle, USA.
We expect the INTA conference to be the usual heady mix of thought-provoking sessions, rushing around to meet colleagues, clients and associates and going to one or two INTA 2018 receptions.
The INTA Annual Meeting will be held this year in Seattle, Washington between 19 and 23 May 2018. The venue of the conference is the Washington State Convention Center, 705 Pike Street, Seattle, WA 98101, USA.
We plan to hold the INTA Tweetup again in Seattle and look forward to seeing you then.

If the weather is bad, we will meet at Meeting Point 2 of the Hall 8 of the Fira Grand Via. We will announce any change in venue on Twitter via the #INTA_Tweetup.
One of the nicest things about the INTA Annual Meeting is being able to meet friends and colleagues at smallish get-togethers, where there is an opportunity to speak properly to another person and to find out what they think about the world.
If you like this sort of thing, please come along to the INTA Tweetup this year.
Details of the event are as follow:
Date: 22 May 2017 (Monday)
Time: from 1:30 pm to 3 pm or so
Venue: Farggi Cafe at Centro Commercial Gran Via 2 (Map and Directions)
The INTA Tweetup is a small, informal gathering where you get to meet and chat to fellow social media users over a cup of coffee.
Everyone has a nice, relaxing time and a chance to put their feet up before getting back to the craziness of the Annual Meeting.
The INTA Tweetup in 2015 in San Diego was described as “the least pretentious gathering at #INTA15”.
The event is open to everyone, and there is no fee to attend.
This year, we are meeting at 1:30 pm (1300 hours) on Monday 22 May 2017. We expect the Tweetup to go on until about 3 pm or so.
During this time, please feel free to drop in and out as and when.
We’re finalising the location for the Tweetup, and the venue will be announced here. It will likely be somewhere near the Convention Centre and within walking distance of it.
Past Tweetups have been held at a Starbucks, a fancy private town club, open air in a park and in an ice cream parlour.
Sounds wonderful. How do I sign up?
If you’re thinking of attending, please sign up at the INTA Tweetup 2017 Barcelona event page. See you there!
