Why visit? We’ll suggest more than a dozen unique consumer insights-oriented experiences for you to explore following the Boston Innovation Conference

Cincinnati Innovation Conference Venue
Home to the inspiring minds of many Harvard, MIT, and Northeastern University grads, Boston has no shortage of innovation and creativity. As a result, the city is awash with entrepreneurs and innovators looking for a way to shake up their respective industries. This is particularly true when it comes to the tech sector, which benefits from Boston’s more affordable real estate -- unlike established hubs such as New York City and Silicon Valley. Indeed, you can witness this flurry of creativity in real time just by visiting promising business hotspots located near the venue where the Boston Business Conference is set to take place.

Looking to discover trends and business innovation in Boston?
To see Boston’s innovative approach in action, you don’t need to look very far. One easily-accessible spot is Cafe ArtScience, which is an MIT-side outfit that combines food with science to create lab-like concoctions, and even includes an on-site art gallery. Once you’ve had your fill of futuristic treats, you can head over to a spot called Hopsters, which allows you to DIY your own custom beer, sample some craft brews, and indulge in a variety of whiskey flights. To cap off the day, flex your creative muscles at Artisan’s Asylum, a non-profit community craft studio that teaches everything from woodworking, to robotics.

Plus, explore more business insights first-hand at a dozen other unique venues in Boston with our exclusive Future Festival book!
