For the past couple of years, Corporate Innovation Conference has been ICT Hub’s annual flagship event, which gathers corporate innovators and entrepreneurs and gives them an opportunity to share experiences, learn from the leading experts and connect with their peers.

The crisis we’ve all felt in 2020 may have hindered certain business efforts, but it certainly did contribute to a rise of many innovative ways of communication, developing and placing products and services, but most importantly – doing the actual work

With everything going virtual, we are committed to bringing our conference online and making it available to all our peers, associates, fellow innovators and business connoisseurs, coming from Serbia, region and all around the world. 

The tagline Innovate now. Be tomorrow. serves to demonstrate our willingness to embrace the new normal, understanding that the future of business depends solely on our continuous efforts to improve, adapt and thrive in the uncertainty of every day’s market.

Get inspired

Real-life talk from both global and local experts and innovation leaders will surely get your inner-innovator inspired and ready to tackle new business challenges.

Share and learn

Panel discussions and case studies will give you a chance to dig deep into your own business experience and provide you with new insights. 

Explore and connect

It’s not all work and no play – use the time you spend on our conference platform to check out the networking sessions, explore our virtual expo area and connect with your peers.

Last year’s conference saw us giving central stage to the search for new business models, and although it is a key point we will address again, the goal this time is to cover other topics of interest to our community and the innovation ecosystem as a whole, which is why we are organizing not one, but three half-day conferences, each tailored to particular business segment. 

Day 1
Leading Innovation
Top management is always the one who needs to demonstrate that innovation skillset is essential for professional development and they have to show creativity and ability to guide teams and businesses by accelerating change. The 1st event puts the spotlight on the experts and inspiring company leaders talking about innovation strategy, building resilient businesses and the best practices a company can rely on when embarking on its innovation journey.

Day 2
Designing Innovation
Designing innovation relies on creating a new product or service that you offer to your customers, through a process of identifying, pinpointing and understanding their needs. The 2nd event focuses on local and international experts and what they have to say about innovating the production processes, methodologies they used along the way and case studies they can share showing how they derived value from their market opportunities.

Day 3
Championing Innovation
Rapid tech changes, coupled with business globalization and organizational challenges, lead companies to better understand how to champion innovation in different sectors, teams, but also among individuals. The 3rd event demonstrates why it’s important to take charge with innovative projects, how to support employees eager to get involved and whether or not the new working reality changes the way we approach our innovation efforts.

We aim to model a virtual conference experience to match the real-life environment, so you will be able to:

  • Learn about corporate innovation from the top business consultants and company leaders

  • Gain insights about trending topics and best practices when it comes to cross-industry innovation

  • Get hands-on advice on how to run and develop innovation projects and programs

  • Connect and network with innovation experts, tech mavens and peers from other companies and markets

  • Engage in open and honest discussions about innovation challenges and the impact of a disruptive business environment

  • Innovation Leaders or Managers and heads of innovation teams

  • Intrapreneurs or Corporate Entrepreneurs

  • R&D and Product Development Professionals

  • HR professionals

  • Heads of Labs, Incubators and Accelerators

  • Startup founders

  • Innovation Consultants
