Poster session and exhibitor presentations

This year's "East meets West" will again provide a platform for providers of patent data from Asia and other countries to exhibit their services in a poster session alongside the conference. In order to allow sufficient time to visit the posters during all the breaks, the poster session area will already be opened on the first day, Thursday, 11 April 2019, at 09.00 hrs. 

On Friday, 12 April 2019, we will start the morning with a breakfast and a dedicated time slot from 8.30 to 9.30 hrs to visit the posters and/or attend short presentations by the exhibitors. 

Call for papers: Exhibitor presentations

Selected exhibitors will have the opportunity to introduce their search tools, data products and services in short speaking slots on Friday, 12 April 2019 from 08.30 - 09.30 hrs. Speaking time will be limited to 7 minutes. Commercial providers are invited to submit an abstract (max. 500 characters) by 20 March 2019. For further questions, please contact the organisers at 

Poster session

This is your chance for direct interaction with users of your products and services. Participation in the poster session is free-of-charge. The focus of your content should be "Asia-related", but this can be understood in a broader sense (e.g. including ASEAN, Russia, Arabic countries). If you are interested in exhibiting at our event, but are unsure whether your content fits, please contact us!

Once you have registered, you will be asked to submit:

  • a brief description (max. 500 characters) of your company/organisation
  • a summary (max. 500 characters) of the patent information product or topic you are going to present on your poster

The EPO will provide:

  • one easel to display your DIN A1 poster
  • one small, round standing table (cocktail table)

Please note:

  • poster size should not exceed DIN A1 (594x841 mm or 23.3x33.1 inches!). Ideally, the format should be "portrait" to better fit the shape of the easel (if you prefer to use a "landscape" format, just let us know in advance)
  • the cocktail table is small (80 cm in diameter) and apart from your laptop, you can place only a limited amount of promotional material or pamphlets on it
  • places are limited and will be allotted on a "first come, first served" basis. Registration will close as soon as the number of posters reaches the maximum capacity

Should you need extra space for a roll-up or brochure stand, please do not hesitate to let us know in advance. We will do our best to make this event a useful networking opportunity for you.

Technical equipment (power supply for laptops, WLAN) will be available in the hotel.
