The 44th International Congress of the Brazilian Intellectual Property Association (ABPI), the largest event of its kind in Latin America, will take place on August 12 and 13, 2024, in Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco. After years of hosting its flagship event in the Rio-São Paulo axis, ABPI now shifts its focus to the Brazilian Northeast, setting its sights on one of Pernambuco’s most beautiful landscapes.


  • Porto de Galinhas is just 30 minutes from Recife, one of the most important financial centers in the region, hosting businesses of all sizes.
  • Recife plays a prominent role in technology and innovation.
  • Its location is strategically advantageous for conducting business with Europe, Africa, and the United States.
  • It is the ninth most populous city in Brazil and the third in the Northeast, with nearly 1.5 million inhabitants.
  • It boasts a modern and vibrant culture.
  • Porto de Galinhas is one of the most beautiful destinations in the Brazilian Northeast.
The theme of the 44th International Congress of ABPI will be “Accelerating into the Future: Intellectual Property and Ethics Amidst Emerging Technologies”
The new tools of the digital economy challenge deeply ingrained principles of intellectual property and confront personal rights, sparking profound debates in both ethical and legal realms. Artificial intelligence and blockchain stand out among these innovations, gaining increasing significance in the global scenario.
At the 2024 Congress, ABPI will host two plenary sessions (opening and closing), eight panels, and eight table topics featuring experts from Brazil and abroad representing academia, corporations, law firms, and intellectual property organizations.
The aim is to seize these opportunities to discuss and showcase how emerging technologies, driving genuine digital transformation, can shape and influence society at large, particularly decision-makers.
The 2024 Congress will take place on August 12 and 13. It will be two days of specially prepared programming, both in-person and online, as the event will be hybrid.
The essential interactions and networking will also occur in 2024 through planned excursions, allowing everyone to explore the region’s beauties.
Mark your calendars and join us to discuss the most relevant topics in intellectual property and experience (or revisit) paradisiacal settings.
There will be a party on Tuesday evening, and an optional tour of a major company’s factory (to be confirmed) on Wednesday morning.
Ensure your accommodation and flight reservations for August 12 to 14 with schedules that allow your participation in all event activities.
