Venturefest Innovation Showcase sign with attendees in the background

Over 800 delegates will come together next month in Newcastle to collaborate, share ideas and innovate as part of VentureFest North East.

Now in its sixth year, the region’s flagship innovation event will host regional, national and international key-note speakers who will take to the stage on Thursday 28 November at St. James’ Park.

Following a packed schedule which includes live innovation challenges and interactive workshops, delegates will be asked to take their seats for the North East Innovation Awards. Launched last year, and delivered in partnership with RTC North, the awards recognise stand-out examples of innovation, with a category dedicated to Innovation of the Year.

To be entered for the award, businesses need to have been nominated by the North East Business Innovation Centre (BIC) and event organisers, Innovation Supernetwork.

This year twelve businesses from across the region have been shortlisted to take part in the Innovation Showcase:

  • Mistura Informatics
  • Your Health and Care
  • if.Vehicles
  • ODIN
  • Nuchido
  • Blue Tokay
  • My ProPass
  • The Algorithm People
  • Plastech Innovation
  • Green White Sice
  • Synergy VR
  • Dyman Advanced Materials

Interviews with all of them can be seen in our Innovation Showcase round up here.

The winner will be chosen based on strength and execution of their innovation and will announced at the awards.
