In order to remain close to its inventors and to global innovation, the organisers of the International Exhibition of Inventions have decided to host a special virtual-only edition in 2021: Inventions Geneva Evaluation Days – Virtual Event. The latter offers the possibility for inventors from all over the world to participate in the competition by presenting their invention via a 3-minute video that will be judged by a panel of professional judges.
The following edition of the International Exhibition of Inventions in its usual form will be held at Palexpo in spring 2022. The Climate Show, guest of the International Exhibition of Inventions, will also take place in 2022.
The International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva is the most important annual event in the world devoted exclusively to inventions. Innovations are exhibited for the first time.
Industrial and commercial companies, universities, inventors and researchers, associations, private and state organisms and institutions present their inventions, the results of their research and their new products. Manufacturers, commercial traders and financiers will find 1,000 novelties ready to be marketed.
