WHIPgroup hosted the inaugural IP Eats event on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at Homestead Inn-Thomas Henkelmann in Greenwich, CT. There was a great turnout with executives and IP managers from a variety of industries, including digital advertising, food service, biotech and medical devices, hospitality, and IP transactions. Attendees enjoyed the unique opportunity to connect with people outside of their industries over a common interest in intellectual property, while dining on a luxurious three-course meal at the celebrated Homestead restaurant.
IP Eats seeks to bring together intellectual property decision-makers over food, drinks and entertainment. For more information on IP Eats and its next event, please visit ipeats.com.
