Innovation Design Hub is a new program at the CEESA Conference; an idea room designed to inspire thinking and collaboration. The Hub will have up to 2 presentation areas with sessions lasting for 30 minutes: 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion. We included a number of speakers in the program so each half-hour scheduled slot will feature a unique presentation. Innovation Design Hub will run on Friday and Saturday during Conference hours.
