The economic turmoil has had an impact on innovation conferences, but I still think that there are several worth attending in the first half of 2013. Here are some that I find of particular interest:
I have attended several of the previous six FEI EMEA conferences and I can say that this is the biggest – and in many ways also the best – innovation conference in Europe.
Besides the usual keynote talks, which are of high quality at FEI, you can dive into 7 content areas including customer driven innovation, innovation execution and business model opportunities.
Personally, I am giving a talk on using social media for innovation efforts. This enables me to offer you a 20% discount with this code: FEIEMEA13SL
FEI in BOSTON! If you live in the U.S. and don’t want to take the trip to Europe, then you can go the Front End of Innovation conference in Boston on May 6-8.
CoDev is a great conference. Good speakers, good networking – and who would not like to visit San Diego in February. I am planning to go there again and you should also go if you want to attend a quality innovation conference in the U.S.
Here is a short list of other conferences that I am attending/considering at this point of time:
