Innovation Management Forum Bonn 2017

Innovation Managers Forum

April 17th-20th, 2018 - Bonn, Germany
Kameha Grand Hotel

The Definitive Forum for Innovation Managers

The HYPE Forum is a leading event focused on innovation management. It’s culturally diverse, bringing attendees from across the globe, and across a wide array of industries together. It’s high impact, and focuses on the sharing of success and failures at innovation, so everybody can learn and advance towards their goals. Over two days of carefully crafted talks and workshops, you will come away feeling energized, armed with insights, and deeper connections to those working as innovation practitioners.

At last years Bonn Forum, we asked some attendees to share their impressions of the HYPE Forum and if they would recommend it to others. See what they said:

Speakers - More to be announced soon

We are proud to host a group of globally renowned HYPE-clients and industry experts who share insights from their innovation projects and discuss current challenges for their industries. All of our presenters have years of experience in creating breakthrough innovation and facilitating cultural change and collaboration throughout their companies.

Friday 20th April

The Forum is an intense and busy experience. That's why we've added an optional non-agenda day for those that wish to arrange meetings with fellow attendees or HYPE team members. You can book an appointment with a HYPE member or team for a demonstration, support, strategy discussion, or anything else that you require. Let us know what you are looking for, and we will schedule the meetings for you.

Six departments will be ready to meet you from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm:

"Very professional - chapeau! Family Gathering" describes it very well."
"There was a lot of room for personal exchange, but is was not too dominant! That's a good mix."
