The Hunter Innovation Festival is all about connecting people in the Hunter that produce, invest or consume innovation in any way.

It provides the local community with the opportunity to connect with other people, new ideas and be inspired to take the next step.

Our Integrated Innovation Network (I2N) hosted a number of events including Entrepreneurship 101, New Futures Hackathon and various speaker talks as part of the 2019 program.
