Houston Open Innovation Conference

Exploring the latest developments in open innovation, collaboration, and industry partnerships

More so than any other global city, Houston is uniquely placed to be an epicenter of open innovation.

As the global capital of the oil and gas sector, with the largest medical center of the world, one of the world’s largest ports, world class universities and a vibrant investment and start-up community, Houston is quickly establishing itself as an innovation hub.

The third annual Houston Open Innovation Conference is a forum where business, government and academia intersect to spark more development, collaboration and dialogue for the advancement of technology and ideas.

The last 2 Open Innovation conferences were a resounding successes, with over 300 business, public sector and educational leaders converging to listen to fascinating presentations, make invaluable contacts and take real ideas back with them to implement at their organizations.

Once again, the conference will feature innovation experts from across the country and will give academics, business leaders and industry professionals alike a creative platform for considering new and innovative practices and launch an open exchange of ideas related to the transformation of ideas into reality through Open Innovation Concepts.

Join us as we explore fascinating theoretical presentations, interactive panels and breakout sessions, inspirational keynote addresses, and valuable real world case studies from across the industry spectrum of Open Innovation.
