Meet the Bloggers in Boston for INTA

This years INTA annual meeting will be held in Boston, May 22 to 26, 2010. It is the largest and considered to be the most prestigious meeting of the international trademark community, with more than 7000 participants from more than 130 countries taking advantage of five days of educational programs, exhibits, social events and networking opportunities.

On that occasion, a group of IP bloggers will meet at Lucky's Lounge, 355 Congress Street, Boston on Monday, May 24th, from 8pm til late. Lucky's is just a few blocks from the convention center. John L Welch of the TTABlog explains that
Lucky's is a little difficult to find, since it does not have outdoor signage. It's right smack at the corner of Congress Street and A Street. Go down a few steps to the entrance doorway. [See this photo]. The convention center is a few blocks leftward.
This Meet the Bloggers VI gathering is considered to be the "best non-INTA event during INTA" on TTABlog and the Blawg Review announces that "everyone's welcome, so even if you can't make INTA but are in Beantown, please join us". Meet the Bloggers VI is hosted by Marty Schwimmer of the Trademark Blog, Ron Coleman of Likelihood of Confusion, and Pamela Chestek of Property, intangible.

Apparently, the term MEET THE BLOGGERS was coined in 2005, when John L Welch and Marty Schwimmer hosted the first two events in San Diego and Toronto under that title. Ron Coleman joined them for the third, in Chicago, while Jeremy Phillips of IPKat was responsible for the Berlin meeting. Needless to say that last year's INTA in Seattle saw the Meet the Bloggers V event, hosted by Mike Atkins of the Seattle Trademar Lawyer blog, where another great group of bloggers met and "fun was had by all".
