IPR is proud to be a partner at the 32nd Frankfurt Rights Meeting – the key conference for the rights and licensing market.

The Frankfurt Rights Meeting has been the meeting place for all decision-makers in the IPR Kristin Kliemann photofield of rights and licenses for over 30 years. Top-class speakers offer an exclusive insight into current topics and trends to over 200 participants.  This is where rights and license managers, literary agents, scouts and publishers meet for lectures, discussions and networking.

The meeting will be moderated by Kris Kliemann, President of Kliemann & Company Consulting, and Head of USA Development at IPR License (pictured right).

Focus on Poland, Romania, Russia and Subscription Models

Poland, Romania and Russia – our expert speakers provide facts, figures, topics and trends and offer insight into new players and current developments in their respective markets.

Subscription Models – you can look forward to a comprehensive overview: What kinds of models are there, how do they work and which aspects must be observed by right holders.

After a short coffee break, the participants can discuss what they have heard in greater depth with the speakers, international colleagues and other experts.

As always, the networking afterwards offers the opportunity to end the day in a quiet atmosphere with a glass of wine.
