Online matchmaking


The Inventions Exhibition is providing an online matchmaking module to facilitate the connection between professionals, media representatives and inventors. It allows to connect with potential partners, to exchange on innovative ideas and on the possibility of investments before and during the event.



For the first time, the Exhibition awarded in 2023 each inventor a certificate of participation in non-fungible token (NFT). This digital certificate allows inventors at the Inventions Exhibition to prove their participation in the 48th edition of the Exhibition. Manufacturers, salespeople, and financiers are therefore able to verify the authenticity of an inventor’s NFT certificate by using the blockchain, prior to licensing, purchasing patents or entering manufacturing contracts.

Each NFT has a digital identity that can be verified and authenticated by anyone using the blockchain. The image of the NFT was generated by artificial intelligence based on precise instructions.

The history
