About This Event

Innovation is the key for organisations to remain relevant. You need to continuously identify new opportunities and create value for your customers and stakeholders. That is innovation, and it has become a core driver of growth, performance, and valuation in business today.

This conference brings together world-renowned innovation gurus, innovation thought leaders, industry practitioners, and researchers to discuss and share insights on how to turn creative and novel ideas into innovative solutions. The theme 'Realising Tomorrow’s Dream, Today' offers a more pragmatic approach to discuss and address key issues and innovation practices on the ground, and within the Malaysia context.
