Bangkok, 15-17 September 2020

Some of the world’s largest corporations and tech companies are gathering in Bangkok on 15-17 September 2020 for the Corporate Innovation Summit (CIS) 2020 at Centara Grand, InterContinental Bangkok and Gaysorn Urban Retreat.

Asia’s largest experiential conference descends on Bangkok on 15-17 September 2020 for three days of hands-on and highly experiential programmes. The event is expected to attract CEOs from the world’s most successful corporations and tech companies alongside innovation experts, fast-growing start-ups, accelerators and investors from a wide range of industries.

The three-day programme offers a dynamic mix of workshops, presentations and showcases, and delegates will have the opportunity to hear from industry leaders, certified coaches, as well as network with decision-makers from some of the most successful organisations in the field of innovation. For hands-on experience, CIS will also feature diverse innovative technologies enabling delegates to interact with creators to access their experience first-hand.

This year’s key themes are: Corporate Innovation - tackling how corporations and governments can embrace innovation; Future of Work - exploring the unparalleled opportunities and challenges that come with globalisation, technological advancement, and demographic changes; Deep Technology - exploring how to ride the next wave of global disruption; Creative Innovation - seeing other sides of innovation in fields such as creative design, fashion, entertainment, and architecture; and Social Innovation and Sustainability - scaling a trending topic that will have tremendous impact on the future of humanity.

One of the strengths of CIS has always been the line-up of speakers and this year is no different. Confirmed speakers include Ed Catmull, Co-Founder and former President, Pixar; Eric Ries, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Lean Startup; Mary Mc Bride, Chair of Design Management, Pratt School of Art; Artak Melkonyan, COO, UNDP SGD Innovative Finance; and Rashmi Sharma, Global Learning & Wellbeing at Unilever, to name but a few.
