2024 Industry Focus Awards

Inventions are categorized into one of 12 industry categories.  A winner is chosen in each category by independent Judges in their areas of interest and expertise.  If the category is supported by corporate or organizational sponsors, they choose the winner and provide an award.  The category with the most submissions, by far, is Consumer Goods & Fashion.  This year, two winners weree selected in this category.

Each winner will receive a plaque representing their category and a prize from either the California Railroad Museum in Sacramento, or Rolling Robots, Palos Verdes

Our thanks to both of these organizations for their consistent support of our efforts!

As our convention grows, we are looking for  industry partners so that in time each category is sponsored by an organization or business that operates in that sector.  If you know of an organization that might be interested in being an industry sponsor, please contact us.
