AGENDA

Creating the Next Frontier is the theme for the U.S. Chambers Global Innovation Policy Center’s (GIPC) annual IP Champions Gala, and promises to be a special evening recognizing America’s creators and innovators in their pursuit of the stars.

Spanning fields from fashion to film, technology to medicine, and those beyond the stratosphere, they have captured our imaginations, enriched our lives, created jobs, and helped make our economy the most diverse and dynamic in the world.
