Cornwall’s Innovation event of the year
Join us 28 June for Cornwall’s Innovation event of the year: “Innovation for Business – Making the Change for Tomorrow” at the Alverton Hotel in Truro. Curated by Acceleration Through Innovation 2 (ATI2) and featuring a bespoke line-up of innovators, business leaders, researchers and academics. We will explore how forward-thinking SMEs can incorporate innovation to not only secure their place in the future but thrive in a fast moving and competitive landscape.
This exclusive one-day event offers attendees an insight into the latest research and innovation trends whilst imparting practical knowledge and expertise to inspire attendees to embrace change as an opportunity, as opposed to a threat, for business.
What to expect on the day
In addition to guest speakers the conference provides businesses with the opportunity to get involved in high level discussions, networking, attend innovation workshops and experience demonstrations of innovative tech.
There will be a morning break for refreshments and a complementary lunch will be provided.
