This year’s edition focused on IP, SMEs, and Innovation in assisting researchers, innovators, product and business developers to anticipate, navigate and better manage the many twists and turns that pave the road to commercialization.

Considering how vital economic recovery is, OCIIP World IP Fair 2021 shines a light on the critical role of IP rights, SMEs, and innovation in the economy and how they can build a more powerful, competitive, and resilient business ecosystem.
