IPR Events London Ltd management were the first to launch international inventor shows in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, London and Geneva.
"The New York International Inventors’ Show" became a leading annual event, staged for four years at the New York Coliseum.
Over 10,000 new product patents and inventions were on display and the shows were open to the public, attracting more than 400,000 visitors.
Media coverage spread, making the pages of the New York Times, New York Post, New York Daily News and Wall Street Journal. With over 2,900 articles across the USA and abroad in Business Week, Time and Newsweek Magazine, Popular Mechanics and Popular Science, the events became the preferred place for technology exchange. Television coverage included Johnny Carson, Merf Griffin, The Today Show, ABC News, CBS News and NBC News, attracting 32 million viewers.
These shows launched thousands of inventors, brought a great new exhibition format to reality, achieved blanket media coverage and entertained hundreds of thousands of visitors.
By converting the publicly attended international inventor shows to trade only, IPR Connections™ management introduced the IPR Events™ international patent licensing trade exhibition formula in 1969 and they rapidly became the largest trade licensing exhibitions in the world.
These exhibitions served as unique marketing and licensing outlets under one roof for the latest new products to reach thousands of companies seeking to acquire or license new technology. IPR Events™ shows were held in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Geneva, Saudi Arabia and Japan.
