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 that 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.
The networking part of our events, as well as the open atmosphere, is a signature part of our forums. The agenda is punctuated with several breaks and networking evenings to ensure you have multiple opportunities to talk to everyone and exchange directly with the other participants about your best practices and lessons learned. Our networking evenings include:
The night before the official start of the forum, we like to bring everyone together for a get-together dinner at STOCK's, a unique restaurant - loft, industrial chic, vintage and a touch of Bronx. Gathering in this informal way gives participants a chance to break the ice, get to know the other participants, and feel comfortable with the entire audience before the forum. This dinner is included in your ticket.
On the second evening, participants will enjoy a one of a kind dinner with some fun activities in order to relax after a full day of presentations and breakout sessions. WUZE Town is an extraordinary location and the largest indoor venue at Phantasialand with two new generation indoor rollercoasters „ Winja’s Fear“ and „ Winja’s Force“ open specifically for our guests and a great dancefloor! This dinner is also included in your ticket.
If you are attending the last day of the forum (Friday, May 15) dedicated to meetings with your EI consultant and/or project leader, you are invited to join a last dinner at the restaurant Zambesi in the hotel Matamba. This time we propose you an African buffet dinner with traditional African dishes cooked right before your eyes. This dinner is also included in your ticket.
"It is the single best event I go to in every year. It's my third time coming to the event, and each year I learn something. Any innovation manager should make this a top priority" - Robert Neuhard, UC San Diego
"It's really about the customers of HYPE talking to other customers of HYPE. Most of the sessions and presentations are actually done by HYPE customers and this really helps a lot." - James Rose, Technicolor
"A fantastic event. Experience real cross-industry collaboration. Best practise sharing lived at levels you only read in books about. Fun, exciting and inspiring. There is no better place for outside-of-the-box thinking." - Andreas Schindler, Merck
"It‘s like the christmas of innovation management: You wait for it the whole year, you meet family and you love it." - Sven Grave, WILO
"This isn't about companies turning up to pitch how good they are. This is about people sharing their experiences, good and bad, and you really feel part of a community that helps each other get better and grow strong with each other." - David Willetts, BAXI
"This is not a sales event at all! While there are a lot of people from HYPE on site, it's really all about meeting with other users, exchanging on experiences they have and sharing their challenges." - Hans Klein, Cypress Semiconductor
