INPEX, the invention trade show, brings innovators and industry together under one roof. This gives exhibiting inventors the chance to gain exposure, generate interest and receive feedback for new products and invention ideas.
For more than 30 years, INPEX company attendees have included manufacturers, distributors and licensors from a variety of different industries. INPEX will even invite companies in the same product category as your invention to visit the show and review your idea. Exhibit Your Invention at INPEX!
2017 Private Product Searches
In addition to the companies that walk the show floor, a number of companies conduct private corporate product searches at INPEX. During these searches, exhibiting inventors have the chance to present applicable inventions to visiting companies in a one-on-one setting. Inventors receive feedback from the companies and also have their inventions considered as addition to their product lines.
This year, INPEX is proud to welcome the following companies to INPEX 2017 to conduct Private Product Searches:

What Inventors Are Saying About INPEX
Education and Support
INPEX not only gives inventors a chance to meet with representatives from businesses and companies, but also helps inventors to learn more about the business, legal and developmental aspects of inventing. The George Foreman Inventors University features a number of different seminars, presentations and panel discussions geared toward educating inventors. The Inventors Resource Center gives inventors the chance to schedule meetings with representatives from organizations that provide advice and assistance to inventors.
Inventors who purchase a booth in a timely manner are eligible for participation in our Hometown Publicity Program. If you choose to participate in this program that is included in your booth purchase, our publicists will write a press release about your invention, send the release out to newspapers, radio and television stations in your area, and follow up with any editors or producers who express interest. Though publicity is not guaranteed as a result of the release (that is up to editors and producers to decide), in the past our publicity efforts have generated a number of articles, TV news stories and radio interviews.
All exhibitors at INPEX are eligible to win awards - including medals, trophies and cash prizes. An INPEX award can lend increased credibility and help you gain additional publicity or exposure for your invention. Gold medals are presented in more than 40 different product categories, and many of the companies conducting product searches also give out individual awards and prizes. Additionally, each year our international jury selects a Grand Prix award winner, along with first and second runners up. The winner of the Grand Prix receives a $7,500 prize, while the runners up receive $3,000 and $2,000 prizes. We also give out a number of special awards, along with awards for inventors in our international delegations. View the list of recent award winners on the INPEX Invention Award Winners page.
As an INPEX exhibitor, you will be in the presence of inventors from around the world. Since inventors share a lot of the same experiences and goals, building relationships with your peers can be an enjoyable and informative experience. Many past exhibitors have told us that networking with other inventors was their favorite aspect of the show. Sometimes these meetings can even lead to friendships or business partnerships that last long after the show has ended.
