“The Envision Lot” provided a golden opportunity for inventors to reach out to potential investors, meet with manufacturers, seek opportunities to commercialize their inventions, and publicize the inventions to visitors from worldwide.
As agreed between IFIA and HKTDC, a program titled “Networking for International Inventors” was organized on December 7 in Smart Lab B gathering inventors and potential investors to exchange ideas and explore the chances of commercialization.
IFIA President, Alireza Rastegar was invited to deliver the opening remarks. He said: “SmartBiz Expo has provided an excellent opportunity both for the providers and the seekers of innovative technologies to become familiar with the new trends in this field and to recognize the needs of societies. Networking for International Inventors program is definitely one of the best events for creating a network between these two groups of people who can exchange their ideas and license or commercialize the inventions.
