The DPMA at Ambiente 2018
At the world's most important consumer goods fair, trade visitors will be able to see all the latest innovations at first hand: from global offerings and market trends to visions of the future. Interest in the trade fair is growing: At the last Ambiente 4,460 companies from 94 nations presented their products.
New products from the areas of dining, giving and living
The trade fair is the stage for everything that makes cooking and housekeeping easier and the food more beautiful: from glass, porcelain and innovative kitchen accessories to small electrical appliances. For all occasions, this area offers an exciting, cross-industry product mix: from gift articles and personal accessories to watches and jewellery. The "living area" makes the future of living, furnishing and decorating tangible.
"Mobile IP experts" at Ambiente
Our "Mobile IP experts" will be on the road at Ambiente 2018 from 9 to 11 February, showing how you can protect your innovations from unwanted imitators. Especially in the consumer goods sector, plagiarism is unfortunately a mass phenomenon.
Who wins the Plagiarius 2018?
The "Plagiarius" anti-prize for particularly bold counterfeits was awarded at Ambiente on 9 February. The award will be given for the 42nd time. The inventor of the black dwarf with the golden nose is designer Rido Busse from Ulm. He discovered in 1977 that a scale designed by him had been counterfeited and sold on a large scale by a Hong Kong company. He then launched the Plagiarius action. You can read here who is ahead in the "race" for the most audacious counterfeits.

 Mobile IP experts
Why are industrial property rights important? We will be pleased to answer this question. Even at trade fairs. We often realise that, even though exhibitors at trade fairs require a lot of information about IP rights, they lack the time to visit the DPMA’s information stands. We have found a solution. Trained DPMA staff visit exhibitors directly at their stands as part of our mobile trade fair team “Mobile IP experts”. We provide information about search facilities and ask the exhibitors what kind of information they need for the protection of innovations, trade marks or designs. In addition, we offer a comprehensive range of written information material online. If you wish, we can also send it by post.
Please make an appointment with us if you would like us to visit you at your stand. You can call us on +49 89 2195-1000.
