On May 12th and 13th, the USPTO and the National Inventors Hall of Fame Foundation will be hosting the 12th Annual Independent Inventors Conference at the New York Academy of Sciences (7 World Trade Center) in New York City. Although the formal program agenda has not yet been finalized, this conference will feature a number of top USPTO officials, several independent inventors who have experienced success through their patent efforts, and experts in the fields of intellectual property marketing and licensing. This conference will feature traditional seminar-style presentations as well as the opportunity for participants to speak one-on-one with a number of the expert presenters. There is one registration fee (reduced for seniors) for this program covering all seminars, two lunches, and a networking reception on the evening of May 12. Registration information is available through the “Conference Registration” link below through the USPTO Museum Store. Last year’s conference featured several prominent USPTO officials, including the Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property (Stephen M. Pinkos), the Commissioner for Patents (John J. Doll), and the Commissioner for Trademarks (Lynne G. Beresford). I will update this blog post once the formal conference agenda is announced.
