Something Old, Something New

Invention Conventions

Looking for an inventor partner? Head to an invention convention. You'll often find inventors at these shows who have developed their inventions so they're ready to market, but who don't know how to begin marketing. These inventors usually have much less experience than inventors you'll find through a trade magazine or trade show. That means they'll often give an energetic entrepreneur favorable terms in a partnership agreement. Some conventions to try:

  • Inpex. Location: Pittsburgh. Next show: May 17-21. For more information, contact Jennifer Yarnell, (800) 422-0871, www.inventionshow.com
  • Minnesota Inventors Congress. Location: Redwood Falls, Minnesota. Next show: June. For details, call (800) 468-3681, www.invent1.org
  • Yankee Invention Exposition. Location: Waterbury, Connecticut. Next show: October. For information, call (203) 597-9527.
