While the INTA cancelling the 2020 Annual Meeting in Singapore is not unexpected, it will not have been an easy decision, and INTA staff now face a significant challenge: pulling together an event, that usually takes years, in a matter of months.

Announcement about INTA’s 2020 Annual Meeting
As you know, INTA has been continuously monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in relation to the Association’s 2020 Annual Meeting, April 25–29, in Singapore. The health and safety of Annual Meeting registrants is our main priority.
We are announcing today that we are working to reschedule INTA’s Annual Meeting in Singapore until 2022 (date in 2022 to be announced).
In addition, we will be relocating the 2020 Annual Meeting to a date in May or June and a venue in the United States. We will provide an update as soon as we confirm details.
Singapore has been chosen to host the world’s largest trademark event in 2020, announced the International Trademark Association (INTA) on Monday (May 21). The association’s 142nd annual meeting will be held from Apr 25 to Apr 29, 2020 at the Marina Bay Sands.
