Posted 21 January 2020

Innovate Moreton Bay is calling for local innovators to join delegation to QODE 2020

QODE - one of the largest innovation conferences in the Southern Hemisphere - returns to Brisbane on 24-25 March 2020 at Brisbane Entertainment and Convention Centre. Innovate Moreton Bay will once again lead a delegation of innovators and start-ups, based in the Moreton Bay Region, to the two-day event, allowing our home-grown talent to rub shoulders with some of the world's leading entrepreneurs and investors. 

Innovate Moreton Bay along with 11 other regions will be in the Advance Queensland Showcase within the QODEX exhibition hall to highlight some of the most innovative entrepreneurs, businesses and projects from across the state as part of their continued commitment to Innovation, Investment and Technology.

QODE has been designed for companies, government officials, investors, entrepreneurs and startups, providing unique networking opportunities and the platform to immerse yourself and your product or service among like-minded individuals and collaborators. Innovate Moreton Bay is calling on local entrepreneurs to submit an expression of interest to join our region's delegation and take part in this incredible opportunity. 


Why join the Innovate Moreton Bay delegation to QODE?

The showcase will provide an invaluable platform to highlight your business and innovations to a world-class audience and is an ideal opportunity to connect and collaborate with experts, businesses and innovation leaders from across the globe.

This two-day event gives you unparalleled networking opportunities with like minded entrepreneurs, innovators, investors and senior corporate executives where you can exchange information, opinions and experience and generate new business contacts at Australia’s largest annual gathering of business, government, start-up, investment and entrepreneurial communities.

This showcase will give you a glimpse into the fascinating future of technology. Global experts have identified technologies that will change the future. With twenty presentations on offer over the two days, you will have the opportunity to listen to presentations and participate in insightful, challenging and entertaining discussions surrounding technology and the future.

QODE is also an incubator for business revitalisation. This once-a-year event where senior executives from established corporate and energised startups with fresh ideas meet under the one roof over two days exchanging ideas and ultimately developing their business.

Every entrepreneur, startup and investor is searching for the next big opportunity and breakthrough and QODE removes the guess work. Global experts provide real direction on where the opportunities lie, and where startups, entrepreneurs and investors should focus their efforts.

If you're a senior executive looking at attending there is a 2-day critical business briefing for senior executives on offer. With Innovation and technology now the single most economic drivers of the future, QODE provides business executives with a highly targeted 2-day briefing on global technology and trends, and the future impact on business and the economy.

Innovate Moreton Bay is currently working with Advance Queensland to attract and secure a diverse delegation to showcase as a proud delegate of QODE 2020. Innovate Moreton Bay encourages businesses looking to create value from their ideas be a part of the Regional Delegate Showcase.
