Description

Since 2008, our Inventor Conference has been the largest event for toy and game inventors. This is your opportunity to pitch your ideas directly to top toy and game execs, product acquisition and inventor relations executives from companies such as the ones featured above. These companies were looking for new ideas last year and we expect more companies this year!
