Taking place from 4 – 6 November 2019, a host of North America’s most senior decision-makers and business leaders from across multiple industries will descend upon the beautiful Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California for our fourth edition of the Digital Innovation Insight Summit, to discuss the most pressing challenges – and opportunities – in the fast-moving innovation sector.

Amongst other things, the summit will be discussing: How-to masterclass – Scaling innovation beyond the lab; Thought leadership – from legacy to leading edge: becoming innovation-ready; and Understanding the Augmented Reality ecosystem and how to deliver real value to your business through AR today and for the future.

From case studies that lift the lid on operations inside best-in-class organisations, to workshops and collaborative sessions that focus on real challenges and future technology innovations, to one-to-one meetings with industry peers offering practical advice tailored to your specific needs, the summit provides you with everything you need to implement your key projects more effectively.
