The Inventors Spotlight at the PGA Merchandise Show creates a unique opportunity for both inventors to “gauge” interest from the golf community and for attendees, manufacturers and media to explore new products or services that may fulfill a gap in the market or introduce new technology.
Each year, the United Inventors Association (UIA) delivers a set of awards created by professionals in the inventing and commercialization industry. The Inventors Spotlight Awards recognize the hard work and dedication given to the process of innovation.
Join us in congratulating the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show Inventors Spotlight Award Winners . Learn more about each below.
