The highly anticipated 8th Annual Open Innovation Conference will provide innovation leaders with a unique opportunity to benchmark their open innovation practices against their peers and exchange strategies for growing their open innovation program. By attending, delegates will discover ground-breaking methodologies for developing an open innovation practice based on shared visions and differentiated core competencies, applying smart-risk strategies to the open innovation framework, and establishing a common language that articulates the goals of the organization.

Industry leaders attending will benefit from two and a half days of single-track case studies and panel discussions focused on advancing innovative processes through external collaboration. Attendees will benefit from 10-15 minutes of Q&A time following each presentation, 4+ hours of networking opportunities, and online access to speaker presentations post-event to reference back at the office.

Seating is limited to maintain an intimate educational environment and networking experience for all participants.
