Our Mission

AGMA’s primary focus is on industry and public education, sharing and developing best practices to effectively hinder threats to intellectual property and render these activities more difficult, undesirable and unprofitable. AGMA’s role is to present members and the industry with strategic ideas for addressing key IP protection issues, and to introduce better controls or processes in mitigating threats to IP.

Membership in AGMA provides access to important programs, strategies and tools for combating gray marketing and counterfeiting of branded products, service and warranty fraud and protection of IP in a digital format.


AGMA will hold four conferences in 2017 to support our members:  two in the USA, one in the European region, and one in the Asia Pacific region.  The locations and dates are listed below, and can also be found in the 2017 Conference Schedule:
