A legacy of innovation: Celebrating creativity, looking to the future at the Edison Awards
25 October 2022 | Lisa Hall
Organizers of the Edison Awards believe that by choosing Fort Myers as their new home, they came to the right place. They want to make the City of Palms the Cooperstown of innovation.
On April 20, the Edison Awards—for the second year in a row—will begin with a private party at the home of the awards’ namesake, longtime Fort Myers winter resident and inventor Thomas Edison. On the evening of April 21, the awards ceremony will take place at the Caloosa Sound Convention Center. Leading up to the awards during the afternoon, a “meet the innovators forum and innovators’ showcase” will feature Miles O’Brien, the former CNN and now freelance journalist, as moderator.
