Innovation Workshops

Real World Insights in 1 hour Workshops

Innovation Workshops Providing Insights

Interact with Industry Experts

Recognising that whilst parallel stream workshops at a conference offer attendees and session sponsors the opportunity to meet and discuss very focussed topics of interest, that traditional format also has limitations in terms of competing for attention, accessibility and legacy. 

Organised by expert partners and international collaborators, these one-hour live and interactive online sessions enable ON Helix delegates to gain insight and discuss the topic whilst making more targeted connections. 

Innovation workshops are only available within the conference app.
