the 2014 utah genius awards were held on wednesday, april 2 at the little america hotel in salt lake city. utah genius is sponsored by bateman ip, utah governor’s office of economic development, utah science and technology research initiative (ustar), ksl, and others. awards are made to individuals and companies who drive utah’s creative economy as indicated by successful patent issuance and federal trademark registration.
i was very happy to see two logan, utah-area companies—which i represent as a patent and trademark attorney—receive awards. malouf fine linens (cvb inc) placed tenth (10th) and camp chef placed fourth (4th) in overall federal trademark registration for the year 2013. additionally, cache valley resident wade fallin (imds founder and current venturemd ceo) received an award in the patent category.
these awards demonstrate that cache valley’s businesses are on par with the most successful utah companies when it comes to product innovation and strategic branding. congratulations to the award winners!
