NORWALK, Conn. – Inventors of new golf training or teaching aids, accessories and equipment will be able to gauge the interest of some 40,000 attending PGA Professionals and golf industry leaders from around the world when the popular Inventor’s Spotlight Pavilion returns to the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla.

Organized in partnership with the United Inventors Association (UIA), the Inventor’s Spotlight pavilion on the PGA Show floor will showcase golf inventions not yet available at retail. During the PGA Merchandise Show, the United Inventors Association will review inventions and award top inventors with one of three awards – Best Overall Product, Best Marketing Concept and Best Innovation – on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.  Judging will be conducted by UIA experts, who will be in attendance throughout the PGA Show to answer inventor questions associated with taking an idea to the development, patenting, production and golf-distribution stage.

“The Inventor’s Spotlight area at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show has become a popular destination on the Show floor and offers a valuable opportunity for inventors to showcase their most intriguing golf inventions to industry influencers and product development experts,” said PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions Senior Vice President  Ed Several.  “In working with the United Inventors Association, we are pleased to provide worthy inventions with an opportunity to develop from the conceptual stage to the commercial, ready-for-production and sales stage.”
