What To Expect From Innovation South?

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 Innovate South 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.

Please note: both ticket types are available on the same Eventbrite page, although in-person tickets are strictly limited for Covid safety, so please register sooner rather than later.



The event will discuss a range of innovative ways to build growth and increase productivity (with a focus on the impacts to business – more than the technologies themselves, using real life case studies.)

Innovation South Topics

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)
