The first inventions and new products exhibition took place in Nuremberg in 1948. Since then Nuremberg has established itself as the city of inventors and the iENA as the meeting point of international inventors.
Everyday life can no longer be imagined without numerous inventions which were shown for the first time at the iENA: From the first catalyst to the first push-button telephone and the Tipp-Ex correction pen and on to the wheelie suitcase and the insulating emergency blanket, many inventions began at the iENA. Numerous scientific developments for medicine and industry were also presented to the public for the first time in Nuremberg. The iENA’s new products are awaited every year with great excitement.
At the 70th anniversary of the iENA, inventors from all over the world will be presenting approximately 800 inventions in Nuremberg.
