AUSTIN, March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Genius has announced that it is holding its Genius Awards ceremony to honor 50 most creative people and companies of Texas on Friday, April 21. The event will be held in conjunction with the World Intellectual Property Day, a day set aside around the globe to celebrate Creativity and Innovation. The honorees will have an opportunity to display their most recent patented products and registered trademarks.
The awards ceremony will be held at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol with a showcase starting at 6:30 pm followed by dinner at 7:30 pm with David Bradford, CEO & Co-Founder of FluentWorlds, as the keynote speaker.
The Genius Awards program (www.texas-genius.com) is an annual event which celebrates Ideas, Creativity, and Innovation. It honors the Top 20 Texas inventors, the Top 20 Texas patent companies and the Top 10 Texas trademark registrants. It selects winners using data that comes directly from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. There is no voting nor nomination process; inventors and companies are determined each year by the number of patents issued or trademarks registered the previous year. It also grants an annual Lifetime Achievement Award to a Texan who has distinguished him or herself over the course of their career as an innovator and inventor and who has contributed to their community.
World Intellectual Property Day is held every April 26 to celebrate the role that intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, industrial designs, copyright) play in encouraging innovation and creativity. The 2017 theme for World Property Day is how innovation is making our lives healthier, safer, and more comfortable, turning problems into progress.
