Following feedback from guests, this year we have introduced
a new ceremony and changed the coverage of some existing
In recent years, we’ve held a global (excluding
North America) awards ceremony in London and a North America
ceremony in Washington DC. This year, we are expanding the
Americas ceremony to including South America and Central
America, and moving the newly-named Managing IP Americas Awards
to New York City. The London ceremony, Managing IP EMEA
Awards, will now purely focus on Europe, Middle East and
Africa. Lastly, we are launching the Managing IP
Asia-Pacific Awards in Hong Kong – a new event
for us. All three ceremonies will feature more awards
categories, including in-house awards.
The research methodology for the awards remains unchanged,
and is listed below. If you have any questions about the

Awards research process
The shortlists for the Managing IP Awards are based on
information obtained during the research for the 2018 edition
of IP STARS. In the IP STARS surveys for 2018, we asked firms
to self-nominate as well as nominate their competitors for a
number of awards. We review all available information,
including all survey submissions and interview notes, and
conduct independent research before producing the shortlists
and picking the winners.
The research for IP STARS is rigorous and impartial. The
Managing IP awards are not influenced by any commercial
relationship with Managing IP or rankings in IP STARS. Any
firm, regardless of ranking, can win any of our awards. A firm
can also be shortlisted even if it did not make a firm survey
submission, but in such case we may require further information
from the firm. The 2018 awards will be based on research
information available between September 2017 and January 2018.
Where appropriate, information after this period may be
