Innovate Carolina Conference - 2019
Date: Friday April 5, 2019 | 7:30 am registration, breakfast and networking | Program 8:15 am - 4:00 pm
Location: UNCC Center City | Charlotte, NC
Conference Theme: Innovation and Digital Transformation: Partners, Neighbors or Frenemies?
The 2019 conference celebrates our 10th Innovate Carolina conference. But rather than looking back, this year, we will focus on emerging ideas and technologies and how they might impact the future of innovation over the next 10 years. How do these two important strategic initiatives work together to help companies achieve more or how may they end up in conflict? Does digital transformation make innovation easier? Does a deep focus on digital transformation make innovation more difficult?
Our speakers will represent both large and small organizations, as well as consultants and experts in how innovation and digital transformation influence the other.

What is Innovate Carolina?
Innovate Carolina is an annual conference held in North Carolina, focused on innovation and new product development. Innovate Carolina is sponsored by the Carolinas chapter of the Product Development Management Association (PDMA), an association focused on improving the skills and capabilities of its members in product development, product management and innovation.
Each year the Carolinas Chapter holds a one day innovation conference, featuring local corporations and service providers who are leaders in the innovation and product development space. The conference is an excellent opportunity to learn new techniques or tools and network with other product development and innovation practitioners.
This is the 10th year we’ve hosted Innovate Carolina, and the conference has consistently been ranked by attendees as equal, if not better than, national innovation conferences. So you can have the best of both worlds: a local, one day conference, filled with your colleagues and neighbors, with top flight content that you can learn and use immediately.
