Inventor Process: The SUMMIT CANCELLED


Inventor Process: The SUMMIT 2020 Officially Cancelled

LAS VEGAS, NV – July 22, 2020 – Over the last few months, Inventor Process, Inc. has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the invention community, the nation and the world. Originally scheduled for April 25th, 2020, The SUMMIT was postponed with plans to reschedule. However, as we continue to make safety our top concern, and looking at the continued impact of COVID-19 on the nation, Inventor Process, Inc. has made the difficult decision to cancel The SUMMIT 2020.

All ticket holders for Inventor Process: The SUMMIT 2020 will be refunded the price of their ticket(s). Refunds will take approximately seven to 10 days to process.

“While it was our sincere desire to gather as a community and foster opportunities for inventors with the global pandemic still impacting the world, restricting travel and preventing large gatherings we have no choice but to cancel Inventor Process: The SUMMIT. It’s heartbreaking to our dedicated team, and I’m sure disappointing to the inventors, speakers and investors who were looking forward to it”, said Edward Ayres, President, Inventor Process, Inc. “We do believe this is the right decision. However, one day The SUMMIT will be back and better than ever.”

Kristen Ayres, Operations Specialists, Inventor Process said, “Our entire team is dedicated to providing the invention assistance you can count on. No matter where you’re at in the invention process; we can help. Although inventors have the idea, often their expertise isn’t in new product introduction. That’s where we come in. We’re dedicated to assisting inventors in commercializing their innovations. Our experts bring to the table decades of combined experience in invention development, consulting, patenting, marketing, and royalty negotiations.”

Inventor Process: The SUMMIT Postponed

Important Announcement Regarding the Postponement of Inventor Process: The SUMMIT 2020

Las Vegas, NV – March 16th, 2020 – Inventor Process: The SUMMIT will unfortunately be postponed due to the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus). The SUMMIT, scheduled for April 25th at The Orleans Hotel & Casino, will remain in Las Vegas and be rescheduled as soon as local, state and federal governments recommend it’s safe to do so.

Throughout the United States, at the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) many events, conventions, sports seasons and now gatherings as small as 10 people have been cancelled or postponed for the safety of everyone involved. Restaurants, convention centers, bars, night clubs, retail stores throughout the country are all suspending operations for at least two weeks and most likely much longer.

In Las Vegas many major casinos, hotels, convention centers, events, restaurants, entertainment venues and other facilities are completely ceasing operations during this uncertain time, and it is likely that many other Las Vegas venues will follow suit.

Additionally, airline travel has become difficult and rightfully worrisome for many people, and companies have begun implementing travel restrictions for their staff, which has impacted several SUMMIT speakers, special guests and other participants.

“Our number one priority is the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, industry partners, volunteers, and our team,” said Edward Ayres, President of Inventor Process. “While this was not an easy decision, based on the recommendation of government agencies and the guidance from public health officials, and after consulting with participants and stake holders, as well as considering the multitude of venue closures, and the many more to follow, we have decided it’s in the best interest of the invention community to postpone The SUMMIT.”

Please rest assured The SUMMIT will be rescheduled as soon as it’s safe and feasible to do so and if you are a ticket holder, your ticket will be honored on the new date.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and the entire invention industry as we navigate the difficult days ahead. We look forward to gathering with you and invention industry leaders, hopefully later in the year,” stated Kristen Ayres, event manager. “We look forward to hosting you at Inventor Process: The SUMMIT just as soon as it’s safe to reschedule. We’ll ensure you have plenty of time to book convenient travel and accommodations.”

If you’ve already booked travel and hotel, please make sure to cancel right away. Most, if not all, airlines are providing a credit for your fare and are not charging penalties or rebooking fees.

For more information and to stay informed please review your e-mails for updates.

We are praying for you and your family during this time of crisis.

Meet Aaron Krause!
Blog by Inventor Process – November 2019

Aaron Krause – Inventor, Entrepreneur & C.E.O. of Scrub Daddy, Inc.

Meet Aaron, keynote speaker at Inventor Process: The SUMMIT.

Aaron is an accomplished entrepreneur and inventor with more than 25 years of experience in patenting and manufacturing innovative products. With products in major big-box retailers and acquisitions by such industry giants as 3M Company, Aaron is a self-made entrepreneurial success story who prides himself on hard work, dedication and imagination.

Prior to his success, Aaron graduated Syracuse University with a degree in psychology. Much to his parents’ dismay, he found his niche in the car detailing industry. This led to the development and patenting of a double-sided buffing pad that solved many problems encountered in the car detailing business. He then refined the pad, gained additional patents and created even more products. Knowing he was onto something special; Aaron’s new mantra summarized his dedication to solving problems through innovation and invention. In September 2008, after engaging in lengthy discussions, 3M agreed to acquire his company.

Aaron then received national attention when he appeared on the hit ABC show Shark Tank with his invention the smiley face Scrub Daddy scrubbing sponge. After successfully pitching the sharks, Aaron received a capital infusion from prolific inventor and celebrity mogul Lori Greiner. Since then, Aaron and Lori have sold tens of millions of smiling sponges to well-known retailers including QVC, Bed Bath & Beyond, Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, Giant, Walgreen’s and Amazon.

As a result of continued media, marketing, and business development efforts, Scrub Daddy is racing towards $200 Million in retail sales since the Shark Tank appearance and continues to gain recognition as a household brand. The product line, which has grown considerably and is now sold internationally, was spotlighted in The Wall Street Journal as contender in the half-billion-dollar sponge market.

In 2014, Scrub Daddy was named the “Most Successful Product” in Shark Tanks history and continues to hold that prestigious title.

In 2016, Aaron won Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Greater Philadelphia and Scrub Daddy Inc. won Philadelphia Business Journal’s Best Places to Work.

Keeping to his mantra, Aaron partnered with Carbon Sports LLC, reinventing the company and product and relaunching as Tovi Hockey, a revolutionary hockey stick that will forever change the game. But Aaron’s innovation isn’t limited to the rink and kitchen. He partnered with the UK company Nifty to develop his latest invention: a patented battery-charging belt that is both practical and fashionable. Additionally, he’s starting four new companies, serves as a manufacturing consultant and appears regularly on QVC.

Aaron’s inventions have garnered the attention of numerous media outlets and have been featured in The Philadelphia Inquirer, as well as on high-profile TV shows like Good Morning AmericaThe View, CNBC Squawk Box, ABC News, New York Live, and ABC’s Shark Tank as well as their spin-off Beyond the Tank.

Despite his busy schedule, he finds time to play and coach the Bantam A Team for the Jaguars Youth Ice Hockey organization at The Igloo in Mt Laurel, New Jersey. Although his managerial duties often take him around the globe, he makes a point to mentor budding entrepreneurs, and enjoys spending time and traveling with his devoted wife and 14 -year-old twins.

At The SUMMIT, Aaron will share with you how the Scrub Daddy came to life, how he’s built on that tremendous success, some of his exciting new innovations, and what it takes to succeed. This is a don’t-miss conversation from one of the best in the invention industry.
