Deep in the Heart
Any city that proudly displays a statue of Stevie Ray Vaughn and has an annual festival dedicated to hot sauce has got it going on. For the first time this capital of Texas, also known as the Live Music Capital of the World (registered trademark) hosts the INTA Leadership Meeting, November 19-22. Co-Chairs Maria Laura Perna of Cervieri Monsuarez & Associates in Uruguay, and Austin’s own William D. Raman of Fleckman & McGlynn, PLLC, have assembled a stellar program of meetings, workshops and special events that is sure to enlighten and impress. Is it any coincidence that a session on “Cannabis & Intellectual Property’ will be held in close proximity to some of the best BBQ in existence, a slew of craft beer destinations and over 250 music venues? Come to Austin and find out!
Just the Facts
As per usual, the INTA Leadership Meeting is by invitation only to:
2018-2019 Committee Members, Chairs and Vice Chairs, Subcommittee Members, Current and Incoming Board of Directors and Counsel, Past Presidents and Past Counsel, Current Project Teams, and staff from government IP offices, as well as incoming 2020-2021 Committee Members.

A Word from the Tourist Bureau:
Go to Visit Austin to explore hotels, music, restaurants, attractions and things to do, such as taking in the ballet, suggestions for one-of-a-kind shopping and activities to undertake in Austin’s beautiful outdoor spaces. Not to mention TuezGayz at Barbarella, Old School Karaoke at Warehouse Billiard Bar, Roaring 20’s Night at Parker’s Jazz Club, and Texas Radio Live from Guero’s Taco Bar.
In most years, Austin averages a daily maximum temperature for November that’s between 50 and 71 degrees Fahrenheit (10 to 22 degrees Celsius). Peak travel to Austin is over in September and there is a handful of international direct flights (including a recently added flight from continental Europe out of Frankfurt).
