INNOVATION FESTIVAL IS GO: Global event is back in Newcastle
Technical experts, industry leaders and some of the worlds best thinkers are set to reunite later this year for Northumbrian Water Group’s Innovation Festival 2021.
For the last four years, the festival has been a global success with ideas and projects receiving recognition across the country and around the world. From 5g drones and underground asset management to cars learning to map roads, the possibilities from the festival have proved limitless.
Angela MacOscar, Head of Innovation, told us that this year the focus is on “bringing people back together”. Last year the event was held virtually due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but this year they plan to combine digital sessions with real-life groups and challenged in a ‘hybrid’ event.
Anyone from across the North East and beyond can sign up. The team invite you to join engineers, academics, influential organisations and customers at the Innovation Festival from the 18th-21st of October 2021.
This year’s hybrid format will see a mix of both physical and virtual events including (TED style) talks, networking events, Q&A sessions and technical demos. There are also celebrity drop-ins, wellbeing sessions, live comedy stand-ups and musical performances. Whether you are a delegate, an employee, a sponsor or simply interested in activities for all ages, you can register with Northumbrian Water here.
