If you’re coming to Innovate East, there’s a number of ways you can take part over the three days. From working on a solution that could change the world to hearing the latest recommendations from the world of wellbeing, there’s something for everyone. Learn from some of the most inspiring speakers out there and network with a diverse range of attendees from engineering and academia to business, utilities and beyond.

To bring true dynamism to the table, we need to encourage people to leave the shackles of their normal working environment and be present in different surroundings that stimulate new ways of thinking. We’re looking forward to welcoming 1500 people to Ipswich over three days to see what we can create when we put our heads together.

Trinity Park Showground will host our Connectivity Campus, where 14 domes will provide the setting for exploring, creating, collaborating and networking. As well as our sprints and hackathons, we’ll also be hosting a carbon and climate change challenge with 10 local schools. One host school will be live from Trinity Park, setting the challenge via video link to the other nine schools. With access to a team of experts over two days, we’re looking forward to seeing the new ideas and thinking that will come from the next generation.

To produce the best outputs, people need to be healthy and well. Both companies are dedicated to the safety and wellbeing of their staff and this value is being brought to Innovate East through our wellbeing tent. Book in to see an occupational therapist, unwind with a mindfulness session or get advice on how to cope with stress.

At the end of each day, you’ll be able to unwind with an evening of entertainment, networking, food and drinks.
