Encounter 6

Trademarks as a business tool towards a new rebound

Global Digital Encounters

Recording

Objectives

The post-COVID Crisis environment is marked by a profound transformation of business and company operations, commercial transactions, and consumers approaches to brands including a further digitalization of society and a new geography for key trademarks. Consequently, trademarks will play an important role as business tools towards a new rebound, in an evolving business and social format. How will /may trademarks play this new role? Which meanings might be expected from this evolution? Are trends of the recent past to be simply accelerated, or would there be space for diverse scenarios? Speakers from three continents will provide a worldwide picture of the profoundly evolving trademark environment under a deeply transformed post-crisis environment and elaborate on possible future scenarios.
