Dear AIPPI members, delegates and guests,
On behalf of the Canadian Group of AIPPI, and AIPPI International, we extend a warm invitation to participate in the AIPPI Toronto Congress. This event will enable you to participate in the establishment of new international IP standards, to experience the traditional comradeship of IP practitioners from around the world, to learn about current issues and cases in your fields of endeavour, as well as to savour the sights and amenities of this year's host city. We will also introduce you to the rest of Canada during the formal programme.
Toronto is a vibrant cosmopolitan city, reflecting multitudes of cultures, cuisine, and entertainment. In addition to the extensive professional development schedule, the Congress has been designed to introduce you to the food, arts, music and sights of Canada. We will delight in showing you our city. No visit to Toronto is complete without a visit to Niagara Falls. Therefore, we are offering a post-Congress tour to this spectacular site. We hope you can join us on this tour so that you can relax and continue to network with your AIPPI family.
September is one of the finest weather months in Canada, with warm days and comfortable evening temperatures. For those of you staying on, the autumn colours will just be starting in the outlying countryside, and so will the hockey pre-season. We look forward to seeing you in Toronto this September.
