News update.

  • Trevor Baylis. RIP - Trevor, a personal friend for over 20 years opened the RTI invention Show at the Fairield Halls and South London Export Club. He campaigned strongly against  Invention Promotion Companies, the likes of ITE & Inventorlink and so called business advisors who where fleecing Inventors dry. Barry Slayford, RTI chairman. Trevor Baylis, the creator of the wind-up radio that helped millions in the developing world to access life-saving information, has died aged 80.
    The inventor, who was awarded a CBE in 2014 for services to intellectual property, died of natural causes on Monday morning, having been ill for some time.
    Baylis, from Twickenham in south-west London, was regarded as one of Britain’s greatest living inventors. He was best known for his BayGen clockwork radio, which he began work on in 1991 while watching a documentary about Aids in Africa that highlighted the value of educational radio programmes in tackling the spread of HIV.
    In recent years Baylis complained of financial difficulties after revealing he had received little of the profits from sales of the device, and he urged the government to introduce stronger legal protection for inventors.
    However, his instinct to innovate did not leave him and in 2003 he told the Guardian that ideas still came to him out of the blue. “If you can solve a problem then you are well on your way to being an inventor,” he said.
    Trever and RTI Exhibition
  • SUBCON & Engineer Expo: NEC Birmingham 5th-7th June
    Now in its 42nd year, Subcon is firmly established as the must-attend event for subcontract manufacturing professionals across all industry sectors, looking to source suppliers, benchmark capabilities and secure the right partners to help them remain competitive in a global market.
    The best of British manufacturing will be on display alongside a wealth of market leading international suppliers all looking to help UK manufacturers optimise their supply chain strategy in 2018 and beyond.
    Taking place alongside a free to attend, 3-day educational programme and our brand new sister event, The Engineer Expo, Subcon 2018 is set to be the biggest event to date.
  • TV, Seeking Inventors & Product Designers that need funding
    Wall To Wall (Child Genius, The Voice, Little Big Shots, Who Do You Think you Are) are working on an exciting new project and are looking for Inventors and Product Designers who are looking for funding to take their products to the next stage.
    I would like to speak with anyone with a product they are passionate about and believe deserves a place in the market.
    It could see them pitching their idea to a studio audience and walking out with the money they need to realise their dreams.
    If you could please pass my details to any inventors, innovators, makers and product designers I would appreciate it.
    PS: I believe a number of our inventors have been shortlisted for the show following brilliantly worded applications. Please contact Barry at croydonrti@aol.com if you require any help with the format!
