Date: 6 September


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

Ahead of the 9th annual Global Brand Protection Summit we are pleased to announce another webinar looking at some of the issues we will be discussing at the conference in more detail.

The future of brand protection is evidently an important question. With more and more of everyday life conducted online, along with the emerging technologies that will dominate in the future, brand protection strategies will change significantly. Key questions when considering how best to protect your brand include:

• What will it take to protect your brand in 2030?
• What roles will artificial intelligence and blockchain take in the fight against the infringers and the anti-counterfeiters?
• How can you effectively protect your brand online?

Our esteemed panellists will discuss this in a thought-provoking discussion, as well as looking at where we are now and how to battle in the online world today. Moderated by the Editor of Packaging Today, and with the support of some of the industry’s key people, we have developed this podcast to give you a taste of GBPS and the wide range of discussions that this established event has to offer.

9th annual Global Brand Protection Summit will take place in Amsterdam on the 10-11 October 2018. It brings together senior executives responsible for brand protection and firms developing new and innovative technologies to secure and protect global brands. Once again, GBPS will deliver cutting-edge presentations on the key challenges as well as future opportunities for the industry, and wide-ranging technical developments in brand protection. We will be welcoming top-calibre speakers to our stage to share their success stories. Check out the Forum site now!
