In addition to the IP 08 working conference, the attached exhibition gives you the opportunity to see the reality of a SoC connected world. The exhibition will allow you to meet the most advanced suppliers and see the latest products.

Why should you exhibit?

IP 08 provides a turnkey solution to companies wishing to gain face-to-face contact with key players in the IP arena. The table top exhibition involves a low outlay in terms of financial cost, time out of office and organisational responsibilities, and gives a high yield in terms of high quality sales leads and company promotion. IP 08 is a simple way of increasing the products and services you sell and getting your name in front of a highly technical, decision making audience.

Exhibitors, book your space now.
