IFIA Participates in Geneva Exhibition 2015
The 43rd edition of Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions, approved as an official event of IFIA, took place from April 15 to 19 under the patronage of the Swiss Federal Government, the State of Geneva and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). This support testifies to the usefulness and quality of the event, now acknowledged as the most important exhibition of inventions anywhere today.
The presence of manufacturers, commercial agents, promoters, financiers, users and entrepreneurs of all kinds, both national and international provided a valuable chance of networking for the participants. The exhibitors seized every opportunity to publicize the fruits of their research to professional business visitors, international journalists from the press and the public and to turn their investments into profit by protecting and developing their invention through the negotiation of licenses.
IFIA also got the best use of this opportunity by setting up a booth equipped with publications, posters, and banners to represent IFIA. Moreover, IFIA meeting space adjacent to its booth facilitated the arrangement of several meetings with the authorities of associations, active in the field of invention and innovation all around the world to examine the potential cooperation.
Moreover, the first version of IFIA magazine composed of 28 pages on IFIA events and inventor-oriented news as well as advertising folders were distributed among the visitors in this exhibition to further familiarize them with IFIA international activities.
IFIA President’s appreciation message for the organization of such a marvelous event was published on the first page of the Geneva International Exhibition book.
