What to expect from Innovation Driving Growth?

Get to grips with the innovations driving forward business success in 2022

After 18 months of turbulence, it’s never been more vital to improve growth and efficiency.

Meanwhile, the past 3 years has revolutionised how digital technology is helping companies to broaden markets, cut costs, and transform operations. What were viewed as cutting-edge solutions are becoming increasingly mainstream. They can offer proven and tested solutions, but at an early-enough stage, still, to achieve competitive advantage.

The Innovation Driving Growth Event will give business leaders a detailed overview of the most ‘oven-ready’ solutions delivering the biggest impacts, today.

After all these months of isolation we’re delighted to offer an event which provides the best of both worlds – with the option to attend in-person – or remotely, if you’d prefer!

The main event happens at Centre VR in Bournemouth, where you can join in the human-interactive experience.

Although, if you’re acting on the side of caution, you can attend virtually, via Zoom.


This event is designed for non-technical leaders to understand the business benefits offered by these new innovations. A collection of industry leaders and subject experts will provide short presentations, in-depth discussions and open Q & As – to explain the changes they have made and the new opportunities they have exploited – in areas such as:

  • Converting prospect customers
  • Building new product offerings
  • Improving product and operational processes
  • Retaining customers and generating more repeat business
  • Managing staff, partners and customers
  • Reducing costs and overheads

The technology areas to be examined will focus on:

  • Connecting up devices, products and machinery to the internet (e.g. internet of things)
  • Exploiting readily-available and newly-produced data to improve production, customer intelligence and even create brand new products
  • Deploying smart computing software to automate and accelerate resource-heavy processes, to speed up results or free up staff time (e.g. machine learning and artificial intelligence)
