Celebrating our global IP network at an Evening of Elegance with Laura Mikkola in Seattle during INTA

13.3.2018

It’s been a while since we last gathered together with our longstanding international customers, IP professionals and friends around the globe to say thank you and show our appreciation! We have been working with our global network for three decades now since we started our international operations in Russia in 1990. We wish to continue to further strengthen our IP network in the years to come, and also hope to meet new customers!

So on Saturday evening, 19 May, in Seattle in connection with INTA’s 140th Annual Meeting, the world’s largest and most widely attended trademark event joined by over 9 000 global attendees, we will host an Evening of Elegance with the Finnish pianist Laura Mikkola at the spectacular Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle.

We will be inspired by Laura Mikkola, who is one of the most shining pianists of today, and enjoy an empowering experience to make sure we all have a fantastic start to the INTA Annual Meeting in Seattle.

Laura will bring us a musical breeze from our home country by performing works from Finnish Einojuhani Rautavaara and Jean Sibelius, the most famous of the Finnish composers. The piano recital will end elegantly with Jean Sibelius’ most famous work, Finlandia. Laura Mikkola will be accompanied by her 10-year-old daughter, Fredrika Mikkola, who has played the violin since she was three.
