Last Friday and Saturday were the USPTO’s National Trademark Expo. The Expo was a tremendous event, providing lots of fun and education to the visitors. I was at the Expo from the opening ceremonies to the close working with a client, the City of Falls Church, to put on their exhibit.
The opening ceremony featured Chubby Checker – the rock and roll legend who owns several registered trademarks. I had the opportunity to both see him perform and to speak with him. He is a delightful person and a terrific entertainer.
Here are photos from around the Expo, followed by a video of most of Commissioner Kappos’ opening remarks.
