The Minnesota Inventors
, is held at the local high school gymnasium (not your everyday high school – even has an indoor ice rink) at Redwood Falls, Minnesota every June. This year Friday and Saturday, June 11 and 12, 2010, MIC will provide cash prizes at their invention contest that anyone can enter.
Inventors will display their inventions to the public, and to product scouts from major companies. Patent and commercialization professionals from around the United States will speak and give workshops for participants.
Saturday morning I will be giving the keynote presentation about how inventors, and even other professionals, can learn the differences between good services, and bad services for inventors. This is a culmination of years of experience in this field, and will be presented in a manner not heretofore experienced in the industry.
Workshops on Saturday will focus on invention licensing, getting royalties from patents, and how to sell your ideas. Many great professionals will present on Friday as well, such as Warren Tuttle, product scout for Lifetime Brands, the largest housewares manufacturer in the World, and president of the United Inventors Associating; Don Kelly, former Director of the United States Patent Office, Michael Neustel, patent attorney, originator of Patent Wizard software, and founder of the National Inventor Fraud Center, Trevor Lambert, invention commercialization specialist, and more.
If you can get to Redwood Falls, I think you will be educated, entertained, and make great business contacts. Plus, the town pulls out all the stops to entertain its guests, the old fashion way. Be ready for a relaxing, yet fulfilling time, for all ages.
