PITTSBURGH: InventHelp, a leading invention services company, and Licensing Expo, the world's largest licensing industry event, have announced their collaboration, Pitch the Brands, to take place during Licensing Week 2019.
During Pitch the Brands, inventors can present their product to an executive panel of consumer product experts and have the opportunity to win an InventHelp services package totaling $18,000.

Pitch the Brands is an official part of Licensing Week 2019. Of the inventors who apply, ten finalists will be chosen to present their inventions to a panel of influential licensing and consumer product executives. They will receive feedback and direction from these industry experts, which includes:

Steve Scebelo, Vice President, Licensing and Business Development at NFL Players Inc.
Dion Vlachos, Executive Vice President, U.S. Retail Sales and Global Publishing at Viacom Nickelodeon
Greg Winters, Manager, Licensing Programs at Boy Scouts of America
Robert Yusim, President at Product Counsel
Michael Stone, Chairman and Co-Founder at Beanstalk

Throughout the past 35 years in the invention industry, InventHelp has learned that inventors both desire and need feedback from consumer product companies. This essential feedback can help them determine how to improve upon and move forward with their invention ideas, said InventHelp President Robert Susa. Partnering with Licensing Expo for Pitch the Brands will allow driven, deserving inventors to pick the brains of some of the industry's most brilliant minds. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Licensing Expo is accepting submissions on their website through April 15, 2019. By April 29, InventHelp will choose ten finalists to present a demonstrable product in front of a live panel and audience at Licensing Expo 2019. The winner will receive an exclusive package, including: industry submission, 3D CAD drawings, prototype modeling, inclusion in InventHelp's VIBE, publicity services, and more.

Products are a cornerstone of the brand licensing industry. Innovations in design, production and distribution help keep our industry growing year over year, said Jessica Blue, Senior Vice President of the Global Licensing Group, UBM. We're thrilled to give entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their product on the biggest stage in brand licensing. These new ideas help shape the industry through unique products and selection.
