What delegates say

  • ISPIM events are an excellent way to connect with people working in other areas of innovation that you might not normally meet, providing different perspectives on innovation and innovation management.
    Christopher Nedin - Department of Industry and Innovation, Australia
  • Helsinki in 2013 was my first ISPIM conference. I was amazed by the number of excellent contacts I was able to make there. I even managed to get a new project stared between ETSI and some of our members, as a result of this conference.
    Gaby Lenhart - ETSI, France
  • ISPIM offers a refreshing perspective to innovation management conferences.  As sponsors, we appreciate being a part of the ISPIM experience where it is all about people and valuable content. 
    Joanne Hyland, rInnovation Group & Jeff Hovis, Product Genesis, USA
  • I found the ISPIM event enlightening and value packed.  Not only did I get to meet people like me who are working to make innovation successful in their organisations, but I also got to hear about the breakthrough research being conducted by leading universities from all across the world.
    Mark Redmond - Ergon Energy, Australia
  • The ISPIM conferences provide an excellent environment to discuss ideas, share experiences of what has worked and what is working less well and to create  a real community of shared practice.
    Ceri Williams - Director of Innovation - Medical Technologies, University of Leeds, UK
