Innovation Showcase

Innovation Showcase is a very special part of VentureFest North East.

Designed to shine a light on innovative businesses across Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and Durham, the showcase is a platform for businesses to demonstrate how their work has the potential to transform society or industry.

Meet the 2019 Innovation Showcase 

Together with innovation experts at the North East BIC, we search the region to uncover the businesses behind the latest ground-breaking products or services and give them a platform at VentureFest North East to demonstrate their brilliant ideas.


What will I get from this?

As well as the chance to exhibit to more than 700 delegates, businesses will also have the chance to take home the ’Innovation of the Year’ accolade as part of the event’s inaugural awards ceremony. As well as various activities designed to raise their profile and maximise the opportunity.

Who is it for?

Entry is open to all North East businesses in the North East LEP area – regardless of size, sector, or stage of development.
