Event Details


The CBI East of England’s inaugural Innovation Conference will take place on 20 October at TWI, Granta Park, located on the outskirts of Cambridge. We are excited to announce that our guest keynote speaker is confirmed to be The Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Minister of State for Digital.

This half day event is designed for senior business leaders and decision-makers, the CBI will bring together expertise from across the business and academic community, including representatives from TWI, Astra Zeneca, Anglian Water Group, BT, Real VNC, Anglian Water, University of Hertfordshire, Tech East and The TTP Group.

 Discussions will focus around:

  •  How can we build on our successes and ensure that the UK remains an attractive location for innovation?
  • Build a portfolio of case studies to highlight the region’s success stories
  • Outline the business case for digital adoption, discussing major shifts on the horizon like artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Fostering entrepreneurship through stimulating, developing and supporting innovative talent.
  • Ensuring that science and innovation feature prominently in the UK’s Industrial Strategy.

During the conference, the CBI will also be launching a new report, in partnership with Vodafone, looking at how businesses can take advantage of game-changing technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and the Internet of Things.

The report will explore the potential of these cutting-edge technologies, how businesses are adopting them and how the UK can continue to be a hub for disruptive innovation.  

Business innovation is fundamental to economic prosperity. Businesses that embrace new products, processes and technologies become more productive, challenge existing business models and grow quickly
