The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), will host its annual Independent Inventors Conference on October 11-12, 2013 at its headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
For two days, independent inventors and small business owners will have an opportunity to learn, network, and jumpstart their creative endeavors. Experts and senior officials from the USPTO will present valuable information on patents, trademarks, and other intellectual property (IP) matters. Successful business owners and inventors will relate their inspiring personal experiences in bringing their dreams to market.
In addition, representatives from government, legal, and business development entities will discuss commercial best practices and the various resources offered by their organizations. Each attendee will have an exclusive opportunity to meet one-on-one with a USPTO expert or IP professional and discuss innovation matters important to them. A pre-conference workshop is available the evening of October 10 to help conference-goers prepare for getting the most out of their experience.
Keynote speakers include inventor, entrepreneur, and cast member of ABC's "Shark Tank" Lori Greiner and prolific inventor Woody Norris, who is responsible for a wide range of technologies, including the HyperSonic sound focusing device.
Attendees will also be able to choose from a variety of panels and breakout sessions that address specific intellectual property topics relevant to the modern inventor and small business owner. These sessions include hands-on workshops on patent and trademark application filing, prior art searching, and recent changes in legislation that affect business owners and inventors, among many other topics.
The new product development services of the Dept. of Commerce's Manufacturing Extension Partnership program -- which CITEC represents in the seven North Country counties of New York State -- will be included during the panel discussions.
A full refund is available for cancellations made at least 10 business days prior to the workshop. Within 10 business days, only substitutions will be accepted. No-shows will be charged the full seminar registration fee.
