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.
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.

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 to 13:00:
Get inspiration and new ideas for your innovation program
Learn blue prints for success from experienced innovators
Share your experience with others
An intimate setting for honest discussion
Build relationships with your fellow innovation professionals
Develop yourself as an expert in your field
It's a party too! Have fun, learn lots, enjoy.
