This is like no event you’ve ever attended before, this is a REAL FESTIVAL; not a conference room with some bunting. Check out the feedback and photos from the 2022 festival - we hope to see you next year!

Responsible Business In A Changing World

A festival for all disruptors, creatives, change-makers, decision-makers & the curious 

Ideas Festival will host disruptors, leaders, change-makers and founders for 2 days of conversations, ideas and entertainment.

Attend, re-energise, escape reality, challenge your thinking, discover something amazing and meet exceptional peers. Expect insights, networking and a few laughs, along with actionable take-aways from global industry experts.

The day time sessions will see thought leaders, disruptors and entertainers take to the stage alongside workshops and cutting edge product demos. Speakers, panelists, hosts and performers are carefully selected to be current, relevant and fascinating and those who attend will be both interesting & interested.

As the sun sets, music fills the fields and guests will be treated to exceptional music, comedy and entertainment and of course the opportunity to meet and connect with one another, discuss ideas, explore different approaches and look at issues through the eyes of others.

Attend Ideas Festival and leave with a renewed dose of creative energy.

Creatives, change-makers, decision-makers, the curious and those who want to hang out with inspirational people already leading the way, this ones for you!
