Induction Event

Our Annual Induction Event is the Greatest Celebration of American Innovation

Together, we honor the newest Inductees to the National Inventors Hall of Fame®.

Induction Update

The National Inventors Hall of Fame’s top priority is the well-being of our Inductees, partners and event attendees. We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19, and after much consideration, we are moving the ceremony date to October 14, 2021.

We will continue to post updates on our event plans and sponsorship opportunities as they develop. Please do not hesitate to email your specific questions or concerns at any time to [email protected].
