DOWNTOWN AKRON — Inventapalooza, the library’s celebration of all things inventive, returns with an emphasis on small business and fun for inventors, entrepreneurs and families Nov. 2-3 at the Akron-Summit County Main Library, 60 S. High St.
Inventapalooza offers local inventors and attendees of all ages a chance to meet other inventors, learn about trademarks from a U.S. Patent & Trademark Office attorney and attend programs. University students, entrepreneurs and downtown workers who aren’t able to get to the library on Saturday morning are invited to attend Friday’s talk and learn about the trademark process from an expert.
