Industry and Innovation Forum - Emerald

At this annual Industry and Innovation event, big and small business work collaboratively to understand, present and agree on future opportunities.

The forum will touch on the following key themes:

  • Practical skills: Supply chain readiness (vertical and horizontal), procurement policy and project management systems
  • Innovation: engaging local and regional businesses in development opportunities

These industry forums are attended by a range of businesses in our communities across sectors and through entire supply chain spectrums.
