Hunter iF Limited is pleased to announce the dates for the 2023 Hunter Innovation Festival, which will be held from 9th to 26th October 2023. The Festival will bring together innovators and entrepreneurs from the local ecosystem to the national and international stage to contribute to the burgeoning knowledge economy of the Greater Newcastle and Hunter region.

The Festival aims to accelerate innovation, develop collaboration, and attract and promote knowledge, resources, and know-how to the Hunter innovation ecosystem. Leveraging the success of the 2022 Festival, the 2023 edition promises to offer new, exciting experiences and increase the appeal to innovators across Australia.

The Festival will include internationally recognised keynote speakers, carefully curated presentations, panel discussions, interviews, product demonstrations, workshops, exhibitors, static displays, and much more. The Festival’s working title is ‘Embracing the Future,’ with the theme subject to change after consultation.

The highlight of the Festival will be the Conference and Exhibition on the 19th of October 2023 at Newcastle City Hall. This one-day event will feature static displays and exhibition space, providing innovators with a platform to showcase their products and services. The Conference will also include keynote speeches, panel discussions, and interviews with industry experts.

In addition to the Conference and Exhibition, the Festival will also feature a week-long Innovators Roadshow, local site visits, BYO industry events at all participating LGAs, and a Festival Action Summit.
