By Gene Quinn on May 4, 2012

Lifetime Brands, Inc. will host its first-annual Inventor Open House on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at the company’s headquarters in Garden City, NY, just outside New York City and only 20 miles from both John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia Airports.

The Inventor Open House event offers independent product developers an opportunity to learn about Lifetime Brands’ external licensing review process, and hear from key decision makers. A day of presentations, discussions, guided tours, and other activities are planned. In addition, inventors, designers, and product developers attending the Open House will have an opportunity to privately present their new product ideas.

In addition to key executives from Lifetime Brands, on hand for the day will be Warren Tuttle, Lifetime Brands External Open Innovation Director and President of the United Inventors Association.  Steve Greenberg, author of Gadget Nation and host of Food Network’s television program Invention Hunters will also be at the event to meet and greet inventors.

I personally know both Warren and Steve and they are certainly two of the good guys in the industry.  Therefore, I am happy to recommend this event to inventors.
