The Ministry of Justice will be hosting St. Maarten’s First Annual Anti-Counterfeiting and Intellectual Property Conference on September 29th and September 30th, 2022. The conference aims to activate awareness of the manufacturing and trade of counterfeit products, and forms part of the Ministry’s efforts in creating a resilient anti-counterfeiting strategy for St. Maarten together with DISOSA Brand Protection Services.
In addressing the trade of counterfeiting and the infringement on intellectual property in St. Maarten, the Ministry of Justice is assembling a panel of industry experts from around the world to discuss how counterfeiting and the infringement on intellectual property rights significantly harm the viability and stability of an economy.
Following the conference, a sophisticated strategy will be outlined on how St. Maarten can be redirected away from being listed as a black-market territory and restore its position as an attractive jurisdiction for brands to establish their businesses. The conference is the start of efforts to shift the paradigm to attract authentic to high-end brands, while also offering an excellent opportunity for networking, knowledge exchange and collaboration.
Register today, to attend the conference as a guest or panelist.
