When your brand is more valuable than your product

Date - 28 March 2019
Venue - Bartier Perry

Bartier Perry is proud to sponsor this LESANZ event

For some businesses, brand is more important than product. It can be a differentiator in the market, or it can be the value-add to an otherwise mundane product. In this event, we look at the creation of a brand, what makes it valuable, effective commercial strategies for its protection and if required, enforcement of it with a particular focus on trade mark rights and copyright. Time will be made for questions and discussion.
