You are invited to Invention-Con 2020!


Dear Inventor or Innovation Enthusiast:

Every year, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) invites inventors and all who are interested in intellectual property (IP) to our annual Invention-Con conference to learn more about the assistance and resources we offer and to hear inspiring presentations from public and private sector experts. The 2020 event is free and will be held online from Thursday, August 20, through Saturday, August 22. Register early for this special event.

This year’s theme is “Your IP: A power tool for building success.” As in past years, the goal is to help inventors better understand and identify the steps needed to protect their IP—from invention to marketplace. At Invention-Con 2020, you’ll have the chance to:

  • Hear from keynote speaker Sam Zaid, CEO and Founder of Getaround
  • Learn from experts how to use your IP successfully as an inventor or entrepreneur
  • Discover helpful resources available to you at the national, state, and local levels
  • Hear about IP strategies vital to any innovator
  • Learn about IP networks

Plus: This Friday, June 19

Join us for a free 90-minute webinar Friday, June 19, at 12 p.m. ET to learn about funding and protecting innovation. Specialists from the USPTO and the Small Business Administration’s Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer program will offer their insights. Learn more and register today.

Please feel free to share these invitations with your colleagues.
