2016 International Law Enforcement Intellectual Property Crime Conference
19 & 20 September – London, United Kingdom – Guildhall
Theme: Celebrating a Decade of Success
The 10th annual International Law Enforcement IP Crime Conference was successfully co-hosted by INTERPOL and the City of London Police in partnership with UL (Underwriters Laboratories) on September 19 and 20, 2016.
Globally recognized as the leading IP law enforcement conference of its kind, the event brought together nearly 600 senior police leaders, government officials, security and industry experts as well as private sector participants from more than 60 countries. The event provided a vital platform gathering public and private sector organizations to share best practices, develop new tools and create stronger partnerships to advance the common purpose of combatting transnational organized IP crime, promoting safety worldwide and developing joint initiatives.
The Conference was a huge success and a number of new initiatives were announced including the development of a new operational model for the International IP Crime Investigators College (IIPCIC). The online training platform has evolved into a highly recognized learning tool for law enforcement globally, accessed by 12,000 users from 144 countries representing over 340 organizations. IIPCIC will evolve into a broader consortium of partners from law enforcement, the private sector and academia.
Plans for the 2017 International Law Enforcement IP Crime Conference are underway and we encourage you to visit the IIPCIC Conference web page to learn more details as they become available.
