This year has been a revolutionary one since the start of it; from WeCon to Women Entrepreneurship Conference, it seems like Pakistan is on a roll to empower it’s women! In reality, World Intellectual Property Day is an annual event that allows the free and open discussions of the role intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, industrial designs, copyright) and they play an important part in encouraging innovation and creativity. Luckily, this year’s theme is: Powering Change: Women in Innovation and Creativity!
The event will be hosted by WECREATE Pakistan in collaboration with Islamabad Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IWCCI) to bring an insightful discussion on the occasion of the International World Intellectual Property Day. The event will not only include discussions based on the theme of the event but will also include professionals to share what Intellectual property rights are all about, what IPO is, what it offers to businesses and startups who are looking to patent their products and services. Sounds pretty amazing if you ask us.
What to Expect from World Intellectual Property Day?
This year, the whole purpose of the event will be to celebrate the brilliance, ingenuity, curiosity and courage of the women who are working day and night to drive change in our world by shaping our common future. That’s not it. Along with plentiful discussions and celebration, WECREATE Pakistan will host a special film screening of Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story.
The film narrates the story of a woman named Hedy Lamarr who was a 1940s film idol. Ms. Lamarr’s beauty glamour overshadowed her true talent as an inventor. However, she doesn’t give up and works to get her work revolutionized in telecommunications and will eventually force the world to recognize that it had greatly underestimated her contributions. Sounds exciting, right?
Moreover, like every year on April 26th, the World Intellectual Property Day this year will also celebrate to highlight the role that intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, industrial designs and copyright) play in encouraging innovation and creativity.
Where to Attend World Intellectual Property Day?
The event will be held at WECREATE center, Islamabad and will be FREE for everyone to attend. Don’t forget to BOOK your place at the most illuminating conference of the year!
