About the Event

Event Overview


Taking place two months after the UK leaves the EU, the Brand Dialogue Forum will discuss topics such as how to defend against counterfeiting, how brands can promote their provenance and branding in an ever-changing market, and how they can develop their sustainability, food waste, and packaging strategies. Speakers will include representatives of leading producers, consortia, trade bodies, and IP lawyers, who will share the best strategies for GI brands moving forward. 


The Forum aims to bring together representatives of GI brands, associations, regulators, and the HORECA industry from across the UK and Europe, who are keen to interact with and learn more about brands with a Geographical Indication. Delegates will have an opportunity to learn about and taste GI brands first-hand at the dedicated display areas during the lunch and networking sessions.
