Held at the NEC in the West Midlands for the first time, it’s an opportunity to meet global creators, thinkers, investors and entrepreneurs from all over the world.

It’s a place to do deals – last year over £5m in anticipated business was attributed to the event. It’s a place to be inspired, to hear amazing speakers and to see an exhibition of game-changing innovations.

INNOVATE 2017 will look at global challenges, from curing and feeding the world to securing the cyber world and delegates will discover how UK and global innovation is solving these problems. Delegates will hear from Zenia Tata of XPrize, Noel Sharkey Professor of AI and Robotics, University of Sheffield and presenter of Robot Wars, Professor Dame Anne Dowling, Tim Stonor, CEO, Space Syntax and Sebastian Conran.
