THEME: FORGING BRIDGES, FUELLING INNOVATION

In an increasingly competitive landscape, it is imperative for companies to expand both laterally and also intrinsically in their capabilities. Our conference theme ‘Forging Bridges, Fuelling Innovation’ highlights the benefits of regional and international partnerships, and how this interaction can catalyse greater ideas and inspire boundless creativity.

The conference aims to provide a platform for companies and entrepreneurs to network, forge strong relationships, and share best practices with partners across the Commonwealth countries. Entrepreneurs also stand to gain opportunities to expand their businesses in these countries and widen their market reach.
