Our 1-day innovation conferences are immersive, takeaway-focused training events
Our Cincinnati Innovation Event is a one-day conference that takes all of the essential information from our three-day festival in Toronto and packs it into one accelerated program. The day begins with a keynote speech by Trend Hunter CEO Jeremy Gutsche’s, who will outline the 6 Patterns of Opportunity and 18 Megatrends that are causing major industry changes. This will be followed by a series of informative trend and innovation keynotes that will provide you with the skills needed to find better ideas, faster. You will then have an opportunity to decompress and engage with other innovators during the immersive afterparty experience.

Why visit? We'll suggest a dozen exciting urban excursions to explore after the Cincinnati Innovation Conference
With a delightful blend of old and new, Cincinnati is the perfect place to see innovation in action. You can start your day off at the historic Findlay Market, which has been in operation since the mid-19th century, and then immediately wander into the newly minted Woodburn Brewery & Taproom, which features a touch of “West Coast swagger.” To see more of how the city is mixing its heritage with modern amenities, stop by The Otto M. Budig Theater, which transforms Shakespearean plays into intimate productions with a unique setup that has no seats more than 20 feet from the stage. Finally, cap off the night at Sundry and Vice, where the interplay between old and new is once again evident in this contemporary bar modeled after a vintage apothecary.

Innovation Conference Locations
Envision Cinemas is a sizeable venue, located on Cornell Road in Cincinnati. Aside from its auditorium, the venue boasts a Bar & Grill with a carefully crafted menu and 40+ beers on tap. This makes Envision Cinemas not only accessible for our presentations but also for the lunch break and the Future Festival Afterparty.
We are currently living through history's highest ever rate of change, and seemingly far off innovations will be here sooner than we think. In this session, Jeremy will prepare you for the Super Future, where AI, VR, and other evolving technologies could soon reign supreme.
