REDWOOD FALLS, Minn. -- The Minnesota Inventors Congress is taking its annual Congress to the Twin Cities area in 2014, ending a 56-year run in its home community of Redwood Falls.

Program Director Deb Hess said in announcing the move that the decision has been a difficult one, but necessary. Inventors have been urging a move to an urban venue to increase the exposure they can receive.

It's expected that an event in the Twin Cities will attract a larger crowd. It makes the show more accessible to people from a greater array of businesses and other resources important for inventors.

The Minnesota Inventors Congress will maintain its office and operations in Redwood Falls. Hess said the office has contacts with more than 2,000 inventors a year.

The show in Redwood Falls has typically attracted 2,000 to 2,500 people.

Hess said the Minnesota Inventors Congress is negotiating with a prospective partner in the Twin Cities. It has not yet selected a site for the show, but is expecting to hold it in the spring.
