Venturefest organisers predict busiest event yet

HUNDREDS of visitors will descend upon an innovation conference aimed at helping firms increase their market presence.

VentureFest North-East takes place at Newcastle’s St James’ Park today (Tuesday, November 14).

Organisers say the full-day event will include a series of challenge sessions for businesses to secure work on projects, such as a collaboration to identify and develop solutions to issues across the water sector.

A series of sessions designed to shine a light on women in innovation will also take place, as will seminars on workforce development and the robot economy.

Estelle Blanks, deputy director of VentureFest North-East delivery organisation, the Innovation SuperNetwork, said: “We've worked closely with the business community to evolve this year’s programme to ensure it reflects the key issues and opportunities facing the region's businesses right now.
