Keynotes and track talks by 30 corporate speakers from different industries and leading innovation experts

Presentations are short and mostly take place in tracks. This enables attendees to stay focused on their key interests and challenges. Each day includes more time for interaction than presentation in order to ensure high levels of energy and exchange.
