REDWOOD FALLS, Minn. (March 24, 2014) – The Minnesota Inventors Congress today announced a call for exhibitors at Invention Expo 2014 onMay 2-3, 2014, at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The Invention Expo 2014 provides an exciting venue for inventors from Minnesota and beyond to introduce their products to new customers, learn from industry experts and connect with potential investors. The early deadline for exhibitor submissions is April 4, 2014, and the final deadline is April 25, 2014.
“The annual Invention Expo connects exhibiting inventors with the best resources to help them get their products to market – from experts on intellectual property and patents, to authorities on funding, manufacturing and licensing, and new customers for market testing and word-of-mouth promotion,” says Doug Reuter, past Invention Expo exhibitor and inventor of SEQUENCE® and QB8™. “Exhibiting at Invention Expo is one of the most valuable commitments that inventors can make.”
Thousands of inventors from across the nation have participated in the Invention Expo since it was established by the nonprofit Minnesota Inventors Congress in 1958. The 2014 event format includes a combination of booth displays for exhibitor inventions and scheduled Inventing Success Workshops designed to teach inventors and attendees how to successfully develop and market their products.
In addition to exposure and networking, Invention Expo 2014 exhibitors are eligible to compete in several product invention awards, including the F. Robert Starr Grand Prize and the People’s Choice Maynard Speece Memorial. Exhibitors will also be given priority status for a “Pitch the Experts” panel, designed to give 30 inventors the opportunity to practice their pitch and gather feedback on their products from national product scouts – and potentially secure licensing opportunities.
Cost for exhibiting at Invention Expo 2014 is $595 before April 4, and $695 thereafter. For more information about exhibitor requirements and registration deadlines, or to complete an online registration form, visit www.
