DCC attends INTA 2009
The International Trade Mark Association (“INTA”) recently held its annual meeting in the picturesque city of Seattle. Despite the gloom of the world’s financial markets and the ever present threat of the dreaded swine flu, over 6,500 attendees from the far corners of the world ventured to Seattle for the INTA Conference.
This year Davies Collison Cave sent a contingent of ten including INTA rookies Joy Atacador, Sally Foreman and Tony Lolis. The Conference provides a unique opportunity for the firm to personally meet with new and existing overseas associates and corporate clients in both a business and social context.
Challenging its reputation, Seattle rewarded attendees with four beautiful, warm sunny days. Home to Microsoft and birthplace of the iconic Starbucks, Seattle is an inviting and clean city with most hotels and venues within walking distance.
Davies Collison Cave held a function on the deck of the Red Lion Hotel on a sparkling Seattle afternoon. There is something about Australian wines, music, food, canned soft toy koalas and blow up kangaroos which is conjusive to a good party! We were delighted to welcome over 500 guests to our event. Fortunately the weather was perfect for such an outdoor event. Despite the somewhat negative world outlook, the INTA Conference was a great success and we look forward to seeing everyone in Boston next year.
