On June 7th, InventHelp’s INPEX, America’s Largest Invention Show opened its doors at the Monroeville Convention Center just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Running through June 9th, INPEX 2016 featured inventions ranging in over 40 different categories.
Michael Robb and his beer-cooling invention, Beer Blizzard, was one of the stars at INPEX® 2014. The inventor won a Gold Medal for his invention in the Design (Technical) category. The Gibsonia resident, just north of Pittsburgh, PA, created a plastic ice cube that is shaped like the bottom of beer and soda cans and is scientifically proven to keep beer ice cold.
Last week, 30 inventors exhibited in the InventHelp-INPEX® New Product Showcase at Electronic Retailing Association’s (ERA) annual convention at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. This annual gathering for the global direct-to-consumer industry consists of three days of high-level networking, business-building sessions and two exhibition floors of companies in electronic and digital direct response.
There is a saying that if you don’t have expectations, then you won’t be disappointed. While this saying has a rather pessimistic connotation, it holds some truth. More often than not, inventors set sky-high expectations for their inventions and become discouraged when they fall short.
