Sponsorships: Women’s IP Forum 2024



1 Speakers subject to approval. Speakers must have sufficient expertise and experience to engage in contemporaneous, unscripted conversation and be able to answer questions presented by a moderator, other panelists, and the audience.
2 One speaker who appears on two different panels would count as two (2) speaker slots, for example.
3 General Admission Tickets for the use by sponsor employees or clients. Offer open until 14 days prior to event.
4 Sponsors will have logo displayed on signage if appropriate artwork is timely provided. As is customary, sponsors at higher levels will have their logos more prominently displayed.
5 Basic contact information includes name, e-mail, title, and company/organization.
6 Panels are recorded unless panelists object to recording (sometimes judges and in-house counsel do object). Panels recorded are edited (we capture multiple camera angles) and broadcast to our worldwide audience, typically 6-8 weeks after the event.
7 During the broadcast of panels, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond sponsors will have their logo inserted into the background. More prominence and frequency at higher levels.
8 Enhanced Profile information includes refined, specific information provided by Registrant/Attendee. Illustrative example available upon request.
9 Co-Chairs will help plan the event with IPWatchdog, moderate or co-moderate panels and speak during event Welcome segment.


Custom Sponsorships Available:  Don’t see a level that works for you?

We do offer custom sponsorships at virtually any level.  So if there’s an amount between the levels above, or you wish to sponsor at a lower level*, we can put together a custom package for you.

*Sponsors of a lower level custom sponsorship are listed as a sponsor on the program microsite and on the electronic agenda for the program, and received the names, company name and job titles of all of those who attend. 

We are NOT pay-to-play, but sponsors get preference. We work closely with sponsors to plan our events, create panels and invite speakers.

We are uncomfortable with “pay-to-play” and have tried to operate differently. Sponsors are, of course, necessary to produce and distribute our content and programs. Therefore, we create sponsorship options that provide sponsoring firms and companies great value and visibility.

First, we always have free speaking opportunities for current and former government officials and judges, in-house counsel, and frequent contributors to IPWatchdog.com. For others, sponsorship is still not a prerequisite to speak at an IPWatchdog event, but we are unable to plan panels around those who are not sponsoring, or to give non-sponsoring speakers invitations to speak until we have the program planned and have identified specific needs. Thus, it is fair to say that we work with sponsors in the first instance to identify topics of interest, panels, and speakers. Thereafter, if necessary, we look to those from non-sponsoring organizations who have expressed interest in speaking. When necessary, speakers from non-sponsoring organizations are invited to fill specific speaking slots on panels already planned, typically within the last several weeks before a program.
