I will then cross the bay to speak in the middle of the afternoon on April 21 at Global From Asia’s Cross Border Summit, whose theme is “Grow Your Business in Asia.” This event too made Forbes Magazine’s top 12 for China list and Forbes justifies this choice as follows:

There are numerous roundtable discussions and networking sessions to encourage collaboration and idea generation.

My talk will be on “Global IP, In and Out of China: Protecting your brand via trademarks, inside China and globally.” You can register for the Cross Border Summit here.
