About this conference
We believe that with ideas we create the future. Much of the world-changing innovation that we are witnessing in the 21st century emerges at and from the intersections of many disciplines – science, the arts, business, design, technology, education, medicine and beyond. This innovative thinking occurs most frequently when you have the opportunity to step away from your regular routine and learn about, discuss and explore how to integrate diverse and seemingly unrelated ideas and connections. The IdeaFestival remedies this often-missed opportunity by providing a unique “space” for the convergence of break-through thinking and lively debate. This series of events attracts leading innovators and curious minds from across the nation and around the globe.
