The Department of Intellectual Property (DIP) staged the “IP Fair 2016” to support start-up entrepreneurs and drive the Kingdom’s growth with intellectual property rights.
In response to the government’s Thailand 4.0 Model, which emphasizes innovation, creation, and new technology in the development of goods and services, the Department of Intellectual Property (DIP) organized the “IP Fair 2016”, the Kingdom’s largest event dealing with intellectual property.
On the concept of ‘Innovation for Life and Living: Smart Living Food, Health and Wellness’, the event was a good opportunity for innovators and owners to showcase their products and services, as well as to develop them for commercialization.
The event was participated in by over 200 enterprises from both the government and private sectors, small and medium-sized enterprises, and start-up entrepreneurs.
Unlike the previous event, this year the IP Fair offered more opportunities for innovators, and owners of intellectual property rights, to show their products, and results of research, while participating in the business matching activity.
Many innovative products and services were shown at the IP Fair, such as Dinsow Mini; a robot to help elderly people; luggage that can charge mobile-phone or I-pad batteries; equipment to help alert car drivers if they start to fall asleep; and a censor for brainwaves to prevent parents forgetting children in cars by alerting a siren and automatically lowering the car’s windows as well as sending a GPS image informing authorities of the car’s position.
