What Past Business Attendees Are Saying:
"Church & Dwight has attended the INPEX convention in both 2010 and 2011 as a spectator and to host a private product review with inventors. Each of the two years, we have been positively surprised by the novel solutions and unique needs that the inventors addressed. Many of the inventors at INPEX are experts in their particular fields and have ideas and inventions based on true insight that traditional market research is not able to find. We hope to continue checking out INPEX in the future." – Nevin Arora, Product Manager - Global New Product Innovation, Church & Dwight
"I found the 2011 INPEX Show to be a rewarding experience. Not only was there a vast array of products on exhibit by many inventors, but it also provided a forum whereby I was able to put the finishing touches on a licensing opportunity that we are very excited about! Without the face to face meeting at INPEX, I am not sure this would have happened." – Andy McKinley, Partner - Vice President of Strategy & Business Development, Lenfest Media Group
"As the product development manager of an American manufacturer, this is one event that myself and our engineering manager do not miss each year. Even if you can only make the trade show for a day, I implore anyone who is passionate about innovation and ingenuity, to visit Pittsburgh in June, to witness the future through the eyes of passionate people."
– Deron B. Oberkorn, Product Development Manager, Zoeller Company
