Innovation Direct™ enjoys experience at highly productive SHOT Show 2011…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with a closing summary on our experiences at the SHOT Show 2011, which wrapped up earlier Friday. The event lived up to its promise as one of the most prolific editions of the show yet, with a record setting 31,769 buyers and overall attendance of 57,390, according to an official press release put out by the show organizers!
These numbers apparently ranked the just completed 2011 show as the third largest ever behind the 2008 and 2010 editions. Approximately 1,600 companies were featured on the exhibit floor of the Sands Convention Center, providing our trade show contingent with ample opportunity to establish new relationships with manufacturers and solidify previously established ones. Innovation Direct™ representatives will begin the process of following up with many of these companies as early as next week, with the goal being to enroll as many as possible in our invention and patent information delivery service for manufacturers, Innovation Direct To Industry™.
The SHOT Show 2011 was truly an international event also, as over 100 countries were represented at the show, providing Innovation Direct™ with the potential opportunity to engage in global dialogue regarding the patents and inventions that we represent. With such a positive and successful 2011 experience, the countdown to the 2012 edition, taking place next January 17th-20th, is already underway!
