The 2019 Hunter Innovation Festival brought together more than 2800 people and was all about connecting people with innovation in the Hunter. The jam packed program included more than 45 different events and activities across a range of industries and celebrated the exciting work that’s happening in our region. The events ranged from workshops, interactive sessions, performances, installations, speaker events and more.

The 2019 festival was brought to you by Hunter iF and Festival Partner, the City of Newcastle. It was proudly supported by the University of Newcastle’s Integrated Innovation Network (I2N), Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the Newcastle Herald, and the Hunter Business Review.

The 2019 festival was made possible by the ongoing collaboration, enthusiasm and energy from our partners and supporters, and everyone in the Hunter Innovation Ecosystem. We love working with each and every one of them and can’t thank them enough for their contribution!

The 2019 festival may be over but there are so many things happening throughout the year that provide support for entrepreneurs, startups and innovative businesses across the Hunter region. Regular innovation related events include workshops, interactive sessions, education seminars, business breakfasts, innovation installations and keynote speakers.
