Innovation catalyst, IPI, will introduce TechInnovation Discover and TechInnovation Connect, a spin-off event series that builds on the success of TechInnovation, IPI’s flagship technology brokerage event. 

TechInnovation has grown over the last decade to become a mainstay in the Singapore innovation calendar. The event draws over 24,000 industry leaders, entrepreneurial innovators, technology seekers and providers to learn about new technologies and explore technology commercialisation, and to seed business collaboration opportunities within the global innovation ecosystem.

From June 2022, IPI will launch TechInnovation Discover, a showcase of the latest emerging technologies and opportunities, and TechInnovation Connect, which will focus on technology matching and networking. IPI’s unique talent community, the Innovation Advisors Programme, will be a critical component of both series.

"When you are innovating, to have a network of inter-personal relationships is critically important. These spin-off events will enable interested parties to tap into IPI's global innovation network and enterprise ecosystem," said Wong Lup Wai, CEO, IPI. "We expect to return with a reimagined full-fledge eleventh edition of the TechInnovation exhibition and conference in Q3, 2023; an event which will redefine the impact and experience that TechInnovation offers our industry and community in collaboration with our key partners."
