Welcome to the Hungarian Group of AIPPI


Meetings on

AIPPI Congresses and Forum/ExCo Meetings take place in alternate years.

Congresses, open to all Members, are held every two years. Normally, about 2000 Members attend with around 1000 accompanying persons. Recent and forthcoming venues include Incheon/Seoul, Toronto, Milan and Cancun. At Congresses, pending Questions concerning international IP law are discussedand consensus positions reached on each Question. Also, at each Congress, Workshops are held on different IP topics; these offer valuable educational programmes.

Forum/ExCo meetings are held every two years in the years when there is no Congress. The AIPPI Forum takes place immediately before the meeting of the Executive Committee (ExCo). The AIPPI Forum is open to all Members of AIPPI and also to Non-Members. Educational programmes of current interest are run during the Forum. At ExCo Meetings, administrative matters are discussed and active Questions are put into the form of Resolutions to be voted on and passed. New Questions for future debate are introduced.

The Executive Committee convenes at each Congress and Forum/ExCo Meeting. Similarly, the Council of Presidents convenes at these meetings. This provides continuity for decision taking. Both Congress and Forum/ExCo Meetings provide excellent networking opportunities.
