12th Edition



Innovation is not just about technology; it's about mind-set and business process too.

Whether you are an expert in a subject area or just keenly interested to learn more, the aim of the Festival is to enthuse you both professionally and personally so that you can apply new ideas and insights to the way you work and the way you live.


Schools Outreach

We need to inspire the next generation to think creatively and see how a career based on science, technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation can be exciting and rewarding. Our schools outreach programme aims to help achieve this, focusing particularly on the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.


Themed Sessions

With keynote speakers to set you thinking, each session will focus on a key subject where innovation is happening right now. Built around a series of talks, debates and/or a relevant exhibition, there will also be plenty of opportunity to meet like-minded people and network. Themed sessions are free to attend, but you'll need to register in advance.


Engaging all ages

Our Family Show and Family Day exhibition are particularly suited to primary school and secondary school students whereas the themed symposia will appeal to university students and business professionals alike. Our Embarkation evening and StartUp Stories event will interest older school students right through to those who have retired.


If you are interested to delve deeper, a number of our speakers from over the years have published books.

And if you are feeling creative right now, why not enter our opening video sequence competition?
