From cutting-edge technology, digital health, Agri-Tech, automation, through to photonics and game development to name a few, Venturefest East on 21st September at Newmarket Racecourse, is set to bring the sharpest innovators, investors and entrepreneurs together under one roof for a feature packed one-day event celebrating the very best of innovative thinking in the East.

Laura Welham-Halstead, Venturefest East Champion, said: “We are delighted to be bringing our celebration of innovation back to the East in September, following on from our successful first event. Last year 96% of people who attended said they would return again, so I would encourage innovators, entrepreneurs and investors to book their tickets fast to ensure they don’t miss out on this fantastic event.”

The East of England is home to some of the most provocative business, science and technology, a beacon for the very best specialists defining futures in a multitude of fields. Venturefest East is a prime opportunity to meet with some of these pioneering entrepreneurs to distil their knowledge and experience, as well as develop knowledge networks and become part of the already thriving local innovation eco-system.

With a range of keynote speakers, including Sherry Coutu CBE and Dr Ian Campbell from Innovation UK, track sessions, start-up gurus, as well as the beanbag briefing tent that offers a fantastic opportunity for visitors to “pull up a beanbag” and engage with the experts in an informal, PowerPoint free setting, this event will offer countless opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors to find the most influential partners.

Last year’s event attracted over 650 delegates ranging from micro businesses through to multi-million pound companies, as well as a range of investors and providers of support services, including finance.
