mdp is Proud to be Part of Small Business Festival 2017

mdp Admin | July 3rd, 2017

We are proud to announce that mdp is part of Small Business Festival 2017, Australia’s largest small business festival!

What is the Small Business Festival?

Launching on 1 August and running until early September 2017, the festival is a great opportunity to learn the secrets of small business success. It has hundreds of events covering 20 topics on how to develop marketing ideas, be exposed to the latest trends and digital techniques and learn from stories of successes and failures.

Where does mdp come in?

We are fortunate to host not just one but TWO events at the Small Business Festival. mdp Patents and mdp Law are running an event each – one about how protecting your IP can give you an edge over larger competitors, and one about the importance of intellectual property (IP) protection before exporting overseas.

IP can seem very daunting… and, well, costly. These events will give you a better insight into the best way to protect your brand, whether locally or overseas.
