10th Annual DaVinci Inventor Showcase!

Are you ready for the 10th annual DaVinci Inventor’s Showcase?

The DaVinci Inventor Showcase is a rare opportunity to meet inventors, feel the intensity of their spirit, and find out what it takes to turn an idea into a viable product in the marketplace.

  • For inventors it will be an opportunity to meet the Celebrity Judges, talk to patent attorneys, learn from other successful inventors, and be inspired by some of the most creative people in the world. Sign Up Here!
  • For visitors to the Faire and the Inventor Showcase, this event will inspire your creativity and empower your imagination.  Attend the Faire – Early Bird tickets here!

As a fitness device start-­‐up, the Inventor Showcase at the NoCo Faire was invaluable the first and second time we participated! In 2011, we were in the prototype stage and wanted to test our product with complete strangers to get honest feedback. The judges critique was a helpful bonus. We returned in 2015 with a “real” product and sold many at the event. We highly recommend this event to all inventors as the feedback, sales and networking was priceless. Thank you all!”
