InventHelp's INPEX

We are pleased to once again partner with ERA for the sixth straight year to bring the New Product Showcase to the convention and direct marketing industry.

InventHelp’s INPEX is again partnering with the Electronic Retailing Association, (ERA) to host the InventHelp-INPEX New Product Showcase at the 2014 ERA D2C Convention in Las Vegas, September 16-18, 2014.

The InventHelp-INPEX New Product Showcase is designed to give inventors the opportunity to present their products to companies in the direct response television industry. The showcase is part of the larger ERA annual convention held at the Wynn Hotel. The ERA D2C Convention is billed as the only trade show dedicated to direct response retail sales and product development on TV, radio and online.

The New Product Showcase will feature 25 inventors, who will each have several minutes to pitch their products to a panel of expert DRTV judges. The judges will select the top inventor, crowning him or her, “Inventor of the Year.” The five highest scoring inventors will have the chance to see their product pitched on stage by professional pitchmen & women in front of a live audience. Inventions are chosen based on DRTV pitchability and DRTV potential.

The expert panel will consist of:

  • Kristy Pinand-Dumpert – Vice President, Sales and Marketing Concepts TV Productions Inc.
  • Karen Hyman – President/CEO Live Link TV, Inc.
  • Rob Yusim – President/CEO Product Counsel
  • Brian Hyder – Vice President, New Business Tristar Products, Inc/Studio
  • Karla Crawford Kerr – Director of Corporate Development and Corporate Relations Hawthorne Direct

At INPEX 2014, sixteen inventors were selected by an ERA panel for an invitation to participate in the New Product Showcase. Approximately 25 inventors in total will be appearing in the showcase.

“We are pleased to once again partner with ERA for the sixth straight year to bring the New Product Showcase to the convention and direct marketing industry,” said Nicole Lininger, Director of InventHelp’s INPEX. “The showcase is an opportunity for inventors to network with professionals who place products on television.”

This year’s D2C Convention is the 24th annual show where the industry’s technology innovators, manufacturers, buyers and marketers meet to learn about trends in the direct-to-consumer marketplace and meet with partners and potential customers. The event is on track to feature more than 3500 attendees and 125 exhibitors, a variety of educational sessions on e-retailing strategies and expansive networking opportunities, as well as a wide variety of events on the trade show floor.
