Can I Trademark an Event?
Let’s get one thing straight first: you can’t trademark the event itself. But you can trademark the name, logo, or slogan that you use to market and brand your event. Basically, you’ll own the rights to the event, which means that you are the exclusive person (or company) who can hold that event, and if anyone wants to hold the same event, they’re going to have to license it from you. With that said, owning a trademark on an event does not mean that other people cannot hold similar events—but they certainly can’t hold the same event as yours.
