InventHelp’s Invention Girl has returned home from a busy trip to Las Vegas. I had a great time attending the second InventHelp-INPEX New Product Showcase that was part of the larger Electronic Retailing Association (ERA) D2C Convention. Both events took place at the beautiful Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, NV from September 21-23.
During the New Product Showcase, inventors had the chance to present their products directly to marketers for a two-minute "pitch session," with the top five products being featured in a "Pitch by the Pros." Inventors were also given the chance to present their idea to cameras from the Discovery Channel’s hit show "Pitchmen" with Anthony Sullivan, to compete for a $2,000 cash prize as well as the title of "Inventor of the Year."
