Junko Sugimura, Chair, Organizing Committee of 2019 LESI Annual Conference in Yokohama

The theme is “Create IP Culture—Open for Business,” for which we will provide a number of timely, business-oriented sessions, giving you opportunities to share developments and insights on the latest in licensing and IP.

We will have two brilliant Keynote Speakers, Mr. Toshiyuki Shiga, Member of the Board of Directors of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., and Chairman and CEO, Member of the Board of INCJ, Ltd., and Mr. Satoru Matsuzaki, President and Representative Director, Ryohin Keikaku Co., Ltd. (MUJI).

There will be one plenary session, two mini-plenary sessions, and 20 workshops specially targeting particular areas for in-depth coverage, allowing for interaction and discussion. We have assembled a stellar cast of plenary speakers, all of whom you will find stimulating and challenging.

This conference is not only a great way to keep abreast of developments in licensing and IP, it is also an opportunity to catch up with colleagues, see old friends, and make new ones.  I encourage you to take advantage of our outstanding social programs and networking opportunities.

Registration is now open, so please visit our conference website and register! http://www.lesi.yokohama/

Our international visitors will enjoy Yokohama, an exciting city located in the middle of Japan on the beautiful Pacific coast and close to Tokyo, for culture, food and shopping.

We look forward to seeing all of you at the 2019 LES International Annual Conference in Yokohama in May!
