The seminar will be held on Tuesday 23rd January from 08.00-08.45am in the Hall 5 Organisers Suite. Here, industry experts will address topics such as protecting designs and Intellectual Property and more during a seminar entitled Design Law: The ACID Test.

Those interested can learn how ACID’s IP Databank (©, Designs & TMs) holding approximately 300,000 designs has helped thousands of settlements for ACID members over nearly two decades.

Dids Macdonald OBE, CEO of ACID and Niall Head-Rapson, director of leading Intellectual Property solicitors McDaniel & Co will offer exhibitors the opportunity to learn more about the basics of IP, design protection, maximising and commercialising designs and how to create a proactive IP strategy.
