Please join us for the INPEX IDUSA International Inventor and Entrepreneurship Education Contest & Reception from August 8 to August 9, 2018, in Pittsburgh, PA!
The Invention and New Product Exposition (INPEX) has been America’s largest invention trade show and is organized by InventHelp for 32 years. The first INPEX trade show took place in 1985 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. INPEX is currently going through a time of transition and developing INPEX into more than just a trade show.
In 2018, we are shifting the focus towards innovation and entrepreneurship education and organizing INPEX IDUSA 2018, an invention & entrepreneurship contest and an annual educational event that gives youth the chance to tap into their creativity and put their invention on display.
