Join us on Friday 18th November 2016 at the Landmark hotel for this year's IBSA Annual Conference where the theme this year will be the "Guiding the Development of SME Clients: Legal, investor, intellectual property and global tax issues leading to exit strategies."

The IBSA have been very proud of the quality of speakers and topics at its annual event, the November conference.  This year it will be held again at the Landmark hotel, London.  The theme of the conference is how a SME develops its international business with the help of those professional advisers engaged in the various issues which they will face – from intellectual property issues to financing arrangements and even the creation of a brand manifesto and digital strategy that will be required in today’s markets.

Our expert speakers reflect the range of disciplines which the IBSA recognises are essential for guiding the development of the SME, and are from the US, UK and several Continental European jurisdictions. We have included VAT experts to advise on the pitfalls the SME may face and transactional lawyers to help the SME develop joint ventures, franchising and licensing arrangements with overseas third parties.  Roy and others will cover the international tax issues they will face, as well as considering potential exit strategies for the entrepreneur behind the SME.

For IBSA members, we are also holding our second annual members’ dinner the night before at the world famous Langan's Brasserie in their Hall of Fame.

This promises to be an exceptional conference and we look forward to seeing you there.
