What attendees are saying

“I am not sure where I would be with the Innovation Connector if I had not connected with the InBIA and attended their International Conference.  This organization means business! The International Conference is where I first learned that I am not alone in this innovation journey.  From the workshop sessions offered to the networking opportunities, I continue to learn the hows, whys, whens, and the whats of this business. Attending is a must.” – Ted Baker, CEO, Innovation Connector
