On November 7 - 8, over 300 conference attendees will come together for an immersive event that brings learning, creativity, inspiration, networking and fun into one singular experience.  Innovate Barbados has become the hub where big ideas, bold endeavours and business collide with creativity to form sustainable solutions.

Innovate Barbados 2018, themed Engineering New Connections, creates the perfect conditions for the kinds of collaborative connections that can drive innovation. We connect diverse people across communities, generations and geographic spaces to collectively awaken new ideas on innovating for the greater good of all of us.

This is the place where entrepreneurs and consumers young people and seasoned professionals, public sector and private sector connect and where ideas become solutions best suited to real-world needs.

Great things happen when people come together.

Get connected and be a part of the solution!
