The Intellectual Property Society of Iranian Americans (IPSIA) will begin celebrating Norouz, the Persian New Year, at the USPTO with a series of cultural events, including a Norouz Ball.

The celebration of Norouz involves promoting life in harmony with nature, displaying a “Haft Seen”, a table of symbolic items; visiting relatives and friends; and paying respect to senior family members.

For the Past 3 years members of IPSIA have organized this event at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This event is the single biggest Persian event at a U.S. Government Facility.
