Law protection

ALIMENTARIA EXHIBITIONS, S.L.U., aware of the importance and relevance of the protection of the rights of the exhibitors as regards intellectual and industrial property, has asked the Dean's Office of Barcelona to activate the Protocol approved last 22 January by the Committee of Commercial Judges of Barcelona for the MWC and Trade Fairs and Congresses in 2016, which was already put into place last February.

The said Protocol aims, inter alia, to ensure the adoption of effective measures to protect the intellectual and industrial property rights of the exhibitors, and the rights against acts of unfair competition and illegal advertising concerning food products, beverages and, in general, materials that are subject to display during the event, giving preferential processing to the resolution of conflicts that may arise in this area.

Attached is the text of the Protocol so that you may examine in greater detail the measures taken to protect the rights of exhibitors in such matters.
