Innovation and creativity are essential to grow our economy.  The Minnesota Inventors Congress™, (MIC) is a non-profit corporation that has been assisting thousands of independent inventors throughout the United States for 56 years.  The Invention Expo will take place on Friday and Saturday, May 2 & 3, 2014 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN. The 57th annual Invention Expo is the oldest annual, continuous running,  invention convention in the world.  The Expo is designed to help inventors test market their products. The inventors learn that by showcasing their latest product in a traditional trade show format. The general public helps them determine how much more time and money to invest in their invention. They also get to purchase products from inventors that have market ready products.
