The International Trademark Association (INTA) will explore the impact of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), sustainability, and integrity on brands and business results across all industries at its first Brand Authenticity Conference in Berlin, Germany on November 30—December 1, 2017.
“Corporate Social Responsibility is a timely and relevant topic in today’s evolving marketplace, as consumers increasingly turn to brands not only for the delivery of products and services, but also in search of a promise of how these products and services can positively contribute to social and environmental change for communities at large,” said INTA CEO Etienne Sanz de Acedo. “INTA’s Brand Authenticity conference will highlight the evolution of consumer priorities and expectations, and how business, legal, and marketing stakeholders all play a role in delivering and protecting a brand’s value.”
Keynote speaker Aiko Bode, Group Chief Sustainability Officer for Fenix Outdoor International AG, Germany, will share how this renowned European apparel and equipment brand is winning by directly linking sustainability to growth. The speakers for this program include many well-known brands, including Toms Shoes, Inc., Anheuser-Busch InBev S.A., Lego System A/S, Abercrombie & Fitch Co., and V.F. Corporation.
Sessions include CSR and social media as the new storytelling tool for brands, diversity and inclusion for brands and brand professionals, the unexpected partnership between anticounterfeiting and CSR, and trademark protection guidelines for navigating the new “green” landscape.
The conference is designed for IP professionals, attorneys, brand owners, brand protection professionals, government relations professionals, and advertising and marketing specialists, and provides numerous opportunities for networking. It will be presented in English, and qualifies for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
