32nd International Conference:
‘The Power of Ideas’

Date: Wednesday 7th & Thursday 8th November 2018
Venue: The Marriott Victoria & Albert, Manchester

For over 30 years ideasUK has brought innovation and idea management specialists together to reinvigorate and share their knowledge, each learning and collaborating across corporate boundaries and cultures to gain new and different insights.

As always we promise to pull together an engaging programme, with varied speakers and interactive sessions relevant to the idea and innovation community.

This year the conference is being held at The Marriott Victoria & Albert, Manchester. With a rich history of innovation, Manchester has always been a meeting place for scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs. The city has seen inventions as diverse as the submarine to the contraceptive pill, to the start of the vegetarian movement in 1809.

Now Manchester is the backdrop to the ideasUK conference and we look forward to bringing together like-minded innovation specialists from around the world as speakers and delegates for two days of creative interaction.

Our aim is that you leave the conference feeling refreshed and reinvigorated to maximise the innovation capability within your organisations.
