The 11th Annual IP Dealmakers Forum will be held on November 6-8, 2024 at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne in Miami, Florida.

The main conference will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne in Miami, Florida. We have arranged for a limited number of discounted rooms for attendees. The link will be provided in the confirmation email once your registration is approved and finalized.

You may register for the event using our online registration system. Please note that all registrations need to be approved.

All registered attendees will have access to the following:

  • Admission to all conference sessions
  • Opening reception 
  • Networking functions including breaks, lunches, and receptions
  • Online event platform and mobile app to schedule 1:1 meetings and direct messaging
  • Recorded sessions after the event to view on-demand

The IP Dealmakers Forum brings together a select group of leaders in the business community to address critical issues impacting the IP industry and broader innovation landscape. In order to ensure the event has balanced representation from market leaders and to maintain an optimal networking dynamic, we have instituted an approval process for all registrations. 

We actively seek thought leaders and senior executives with experience and decision-making power within their respective organizations. We review individual registrations based on organizational profile, level of seniority as represented by job title, biographical information, and referral source.

We consider the type of organization, aiming to achieve a balanced representation of corporate IP owners, licensing company executives, law firm executives, investors, advisors, and other key stakeholders.

Additionally, we look to include perspectives from those that have not previously attended the event, as well as historically underrepresented groups.

Once you have completed your online registration, you will receive an email notification regarding the status of your application within 48 hours.

Due to capacity limits at our event venue, along with our aim to achieve optimal dynamics for discussion and networking, we must be selective with registration approvals. If your registration was declined, we may have reached venue capacity, or it’s possible that you did not meet the criteria for attendance. We encourage you to reapply the following year.

Alternatively, you may be offered a place on the waiting list if we’ve reached our maximum capacity for your organization type (e.g., law firm, advisor, licensing company, etc.) Additionally, we limit the number of attendees per non-sponsoring organization to two individuals, so you may be offered a place on the waiting list if your organization has already registered two individuals.

Once you submit your registration, a hold will be placed on your card provided during registration. If your registration is approved, your payment will be processed using the credit card information you provide below.

If your registration is declined or you are waitlisted, your credit card will not be charged.
