Join Europe's Premier Innovation Conference!

Join us at the 2021 ISPIM Innovation Conference (Berlin). Engage with fellow innovation professionals from academia, industry, consulting and the public sector in workshops, hot-topic discussions and discussion panels as well as during the networking events. Hear from leading innovation thought leaders in fireside chats and interviews during the event.
Given the continued uncertainty surrounding the global pandemic, it is our intention to run the Berlin conference as a virtual event. We will try to add an in-person programme closer to the date depending on developments.  All tickets will always be valid for the virtual programme and delegates would be allowed to “upgrade them” for in-person participation should circumstances permit us to meet in Berlin.  
Rest assured that the conference will be taking place no matter what so submissions should be made as normal. The deadline for submissions is still 26 February 2021.
3 days of thought-provoking innovation discussions
650 innovation professionals from 50 countries
250+ presentations with innovation management insights from industry and research
25+ workshops to engage with
