The China, Latin America and South-East Asia IPR SME Helpdesks are holding their Annual Stakeholder Meeting in Brussels, at the European Economic and Social Committee on the 4th of April 2017. Joining the three regional Helpdesks as a co-organiser is Business Beyond Borders (BBB), a co-funded EU project that supports you in maximising your matchmaking experience at international trade fairs and overseas.

The event will include the participation of complementary key EU co-funded initiatives that are all supporting EU SMEs in their internationalisation efforts, as well as various intermediaries and companies. They will all contribute to the interactive panel- and roundtable discussions and will be available for the matchmaking session.

Similar to previous editions, the meeting will be a key opportunity to have your say on the services of the Helpdesks and join discussions on what can be done towards its continuous improvement in terms of support to businesses and collaboration with partner organisations and experts.





The Matchmaking Session will take place at the end of the Annual Stakeholder Meeting on the 4th of April from 15.00pm – 17.00pm. The dedicated area is located in the premises of the European Economic and Social Committee - Rue Belliard 99-101, 1000 Brussels.

The Matchmaking Session will make for a great opportunity to see how the free services of the Helpdesks can complement and aid your organisation in providing tailor made assistance to your members. As a company the Matchmaking Session is an excellent chance to have your IPR questions answered by an IP expert.

Attendees will include European SMEs already established in, or working with business entities in China, Latin America or South East Asia, and those with an interest in internationalising in these regions. The presence of business support organisations and other co-funded EU schemes to support businesses in their internationalisation makes this an event you simply cannot miss.


Following the Matchmaking Session there will be a Networking Cocktail, to conclude the day.


We look forward to welcoming you!
