Have you invented the next bar code scanner, a new way of profiting from the Internet, a fat substitute or a cordless monkey wrench? If so, an inventor's conference sponsored by Florida International University may be just what you need to make your product succeed.

A half-dozen inventors of well-known items are among those participating in a workshop on Jan. 19-20 at the Radisson Mart Plaza Hotel in Miami.

The conference, called "Making Invention Pay: Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Retailing," is the first in a decade, according to its organizers.

More than 20 experts on patents, marketing, manufacturing, licensing and funding new products, ideas and technologies will put on workshops.

"The main purpose is to educate inventors to become entrepreneurs," said Pamela Riddle, the Gainesville-based consultant organizing the conference.

Inventors will meet with representatives from major retailers, such as Wal-Mart, Sears and Home Shopping Network Direct and will be able to display their products. Display tables are $150.

Expected speakers include Dr. J. Robert Cade, inventor of Gatorade; Phil Bart, developer of the Cabbage Patch doll; Edward Shadd, a member of the development team that created the UPC bar code; and Don Kelly, director of the patent examining group in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Registration costs $125, which includes workshop materials, two lunches and light breakfast.

For more information, contact Myriam Rios at FIU (348-2272) or the event organizer, Innovative Product Technologies Inc., at 904-373-1007.
