Is It Safe to Share or Talk About My Invention at a Trade Show Before Filing for a Patent?

Now this one is in regards to trade shows Garin would like to know, is trade shows good for you and your product. And should you attend a trade show without patents filed or patent pending number? You absolutely should not reveal your idea at a trade show. So the answer to that, no, you know, trade shows or there's there's hundreds of stories of inventors that have been ripped off at trade shows by prematurely revealing their idea. It's easy to be tempted when you're speaking to a possible manufacturer, and they're questioning you about your idea to reveal too much.

I would have to say if you can do it carefully if you can go to the trade show, to not give out information, or go there as a sponge, to soak in information from other from others. So look at the product. Typically, if you see products at trade shows, they should be only patented products or patent pending products. So take a look at your competition.

You might want to look to see if there's any patent numbers or patent pending numbers for products that are similar, study those patents, but go there to receive information not to speak about your product. So you have to resist the urge to ask others whether they would have an interest in and then start describing your product that's a road to losing rights to your idea.
