As inventors we focus so much on the product itself. However, the packaging of your invention can be very influential in the success of a new product.

This panel event includes a mix of packaging professionals to help you think about how to best package your invention. Our panelist's backgrounds are listed below and include a designer, engineer, and supplier.
