“With so many of the top minds in the IP industry gathered together for this event, the theme of ‘Imagine, Innovate, Inspire’ is particularly fitting,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of Anaqua. “We have the best and most innovative customers in the world, and we care about what they have to say. That’s why we bring them together as part of a true user community to share insights and best practices and to outline what lies ahead for the industry.”


This year’s conference will kick off with two days of training for both corporate and law firm customers, followed by two days of speakers, panels, and product previews organized along four tracks: Corporate / IP Operations, Law Firms, Analytics & Services, and Executive.


Anaqua’s ever-growing user community has been coming together for this conference since 2005, creating one of the industry’s largest gatherings of IP experts. This year, they will be meeting at the Loews Royal Pacific Hotel in Orlando.


The Anaqua User Conference comes after a very successful year across the company’sfamily of solutions.
