We’re really excited to be attending this years’ Malvern Festival of Innovation!
The Festival is a smorgasbord of science, technology, social enterprise and entrepreneurship; innovation by name and innovative by nature.
‘Today we need to innovate more than ever: the way we do business, the way we use resources; the way we live. We need new ideas to stay competitive, new technologies to improve lives, and new insights to lead the way. Join us to discover what’s coming next, to learn how others are innovating, and to showcase your own research and development.
Don’t just think out of the box, jump out of it and join in at the Festival of Innovation in Great Malvern. Possibly the UK’s premier forum for highlighting and discussing new ideas, and unlike many trade and popularist events, the exhibition and symposia are free to attend and open to business professionals, students, and members of the public alike.‘
The event, which launches on Wednesday (October 1), continues to grow and this year will span four days at Malvern Theatres and includes parallel events around the town with a range of guest speakers.
Organised by Malvern-based Key IQ in association with Malvern Hills District Council and supported by numerous sponsors, the festival is free to attend.
This year’s festival focuses on engineering and manufacturing, cyber security, and the Business of Innovating explored, with keynote speakers descending on Malvern from around the UK.
The festival closes on Saturday (October 4) with a specially themed Family Day including guest presentations from Dragons’ Den winner Mark Champkins and broadcaster Quentin Cooper from BBC Radio’s Material World.
Dr Adrian Burden, the founder of the Malvern Festival of Innovation, said: “The festival is a really good opportunity for people interested in business and technology innovation from around the region to come together and hear from world experts in their field.”
We’ll be on stand A1 in the Upper Foyer from thursday; so come and talk to us about our exciting new GeoVation Challenge, find out about our previous challenges and see some of our winning challenges and what they have achieved.
On Friday there will be an Ordnance Survey GeoVation Open Innovation Workshop Hosted by Chris Parker, Head of Innovation at Ordinance Survey’s GeoVation and Roland Harwood, Co-Founder & Networks Partner at 100%Open
Make sure you take some time out from the exhibition and listen to entrepreneurs and technology experts explaining what’s on the horizon. Learn how businesses are approaching the future and uncover new opportunities…
We hope to see you there.
