MEET THE INVENTORS - A (Mostly) Mom-Entrepreneur Media Event Featuring The Personalities Behind The Products

NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Product-n-Press: MEET THE INVENTORS AND THE BRAINS BEHIND THE BIG IDEAS features mom-entrepreneurs, small businesses owners, inventors + authorities on entrepreneurship. Each participating brand has a personal backstory with the creator on site and product currently available for consumer purchase.  This event is open to all media and over 100 top outlets to be represented on site.

A morning coffee talk includes experts on bringing consumer product ideas to market: Patrick Raymond, former president United Inventors Association; Financier Karen Griffith Gryga, co-founder FashInvest; and mom-entrepreneur Amy Baxter – inventor of BUZZY. A reception is to be held in the afternoon honoring photographer + furniture designer Jennifer Graylock – creator of the "Sit on My Face" collection of celebrity faced furniture as seen on The Soup + Chelsea Lately.

"This event has been created with the little guy in mind," says event organizer Jono Waks.  "Small business is the backbone to this economic recovery but small business often needs just one wee break; Meet the Inventors is that opportunity to showcase their product and tell their story to an important audience of influencers."

Brands to include:  Baby Elephant Ears, Brenthaven, Buzzy, Cumberland's Tidy Tots + Shave Well, Eco-Zip, FaceChairs, Ieolus featherweight bags, Isabelt, Ivar Shelf System Backpacks, Magnificent Baby, Max Mirani luggage, Miss Jessie's Curly Hair Care, Nizo Wear, Operation Smile, Rivet & Sway Eyewear, SousVide ovens, Sweet Rexies candy, Vs.Mittens, Wrapeaze.

"This is a curated event," notes Jono Waks. Continuing his thought, "There are five entry slots left but they usually sell out."

Now in its fifth year, Product-n-Press is a series of short-lead media themed events occurring throughout the year produced by Jono Waks, Jono Productions. Coming this February: The Accessory Lounge – a dynamic space – featuring accessory brands during New York Fashion Week.
