An outstanding roster of speakers and experts from the USPTO and the private sector will participate. They include Dr. Forrest Bird, whose invention of the “Baby Bird” respirator has saved millions of infants’ lives over the years. Dr. Bird was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 1996. Product development and marketing is always a popular topic at the independent inventors conferences. Louis Foreman the CEO of Enventys, a product design and manufacturing firm, will cover that important subject in Chicago. Foreman is also the executive producer of “Everyday Edisons”, a new series that begins airing on public broadcasting stations this fall. The program features independent inventors and follows the development, packaging and marketing of their inventions.

Commissioner for Patents John Doll will lead the USPTO contingent attending the conference. Seasoned patent and trademark examiners will be on hand throughout the two days conducting workshops and holding one on one meetings with attendees. Both novice and experienced inventors will find the conference informative and helpful.
