Gator Power Gates at INPEX

Gator Power Gates Inc. presented their unique utility patent gate opener to the "Invention Show" or otherwise known as "The Invention and New Products Exposition" (INPEX) operated by Invent Help. This was a great opportunity to meet other Licensee's to help GPG, Inc bring this product to market. We flew into Pittsburgh Monday for a Tuesday setup. Show was Wednesday through Friday (June 18th - 20th) where we met lots of new people both in the show and interested companies. Patti and I really had a lot of fun.
Gold Medal Winner, Patti Alexander, Gator Power Gates
At Friday nights awards banquet Patti and I were surprised to learn Gator Power Gates won a Gold Medal for Special Technologies. I have to say that it was fun to be recognized for automatic gate opener invention. Patti called her Dad that evening to share the good news and he (John Curry) sounded all choked up.

Patti and I pictured in our booth at INPEX where we enjoyed the interest of a couple of companies that may help us bring the Gator Power Gate to the public. We kept hearing comments like, "this hasn't been invented yet?" Patti and I have deep gratitude for the people we met in Pittsburgh. We really had a great time all week.

We even got to meet George Foreman, 2 time heavy weight champion of the world. You would also remember him by the "George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine".
