INNO 2020 conference is going virtual on the previously scheduled dates of April 28-29, 2020 completely free of charge. 

After extensive monitoring of the COVID-19 situation, we believe the need for innovation and connection is more essential than ever before.

Our world-renowned speakers and cross-industry topics are relevant during these uncertain times, and it is through collaboration that positive and life-saving innovation stems.

If you purchased a ticket and would like a full or partial refund, please email Remaining funds from ticket sales will be donated to GNOpivot to support New Orleans companies pivoting their business to fight the pandemic spread.


Each year, companies pour millions of dollars into Research & Development and innovation, in an attempt to stay relevant and gain a competitive edge. Yet, 88% of internal innovation efforts will fail.

The unspoken secret of innovation is a result of connecting industries and ideas. Innovation can’t happen without relationships and partners to drive ideas forward.


“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” — Albert Einstein
