Coming Soon: Announcing the 2020 Class of Inductees

Exciting news is just around the corner!

A New Class Will Be Revealed

For the second year in a row, the National Inventors Hall of Fame® (NIHF) will announce its 2020 class of Inductees at CES® (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas.

CES is an annual trade show organized by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) that announces new technologies and celebrates innovation. This January, NIHF will be making its Inductee announcement live from the event.

This group of visionary innovators has advanced some of the world’s most groundbreaking and influential technologies. Each Inductee is a U.S. patent holder who has made a significant impact on society, and their acceptance into NIHF is kept entirely confidential until the official announcement is made.

Join Us for a Memorable Conversation

The 2020 class of Inductees will be revealed on the CTA Grand Lobby Stage on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020 at 1 p.m. PST.

Sharing the announcement is a panel that CES attendees won’t want to miss. Rini Paiva, NIHF’s Executive Vice President of Selection and Recognition, and Andrei Iancu, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), will be joined by two new 2020 Inductees.

The panel will offer invaluable insight as they share their perspectives on the evolving technology landscape and discuss the importance of innovation.

The new class of Inductees will officially join the NIHF family during the annual Induction Ceremony on Thursday, May 7, 2020, at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
