FEI: Front End of Innovation 2024

Innovators worldwide are increasingly challenged to balance the twin pressures of immediate growth with long-term resilience.

At FEI: Front End of Innovation 2024, you'll join corporate innovators and R&D executives, commercial strategy and transformation teams from around the world to identify emerging trends, learn from industry leaders and build the foundational networks needed to forge growth and resilience together in ways that strengthen our organizations against future headwinds.

Forging Growth & Resilience Through Innovation with Intelligence

Why Do Great Companies Fail?

In The Innovator's Dilemma, Professor Clayton Christensen concluded that often well-managed companies fail due to the very management practices that allowed them to become inudstry leaders, also make it extremely difficult for them to develop the disruptive technologies that ultimately steal away their markets.

Or, as they say: “What got you here, won’t get you there.”

In the 21st year of FEI: Front End of Innovation, we will continue to answer Professor Christiansen’s oracular question with strategies not-only to avoid failure, but also to help grow and obtain resilience into the future by integrating the disruptive technologies of the day while sustaining the front-end of innovation principles that contribute to well-managed organizations. Join us for in-depth exploration along six key themes.

Attaining Enterprise Collective Intelligence from AI & Tacit (Human) Organizational Knowledge

Driving Forward from Sustainability to Circular Economies

Generative AI Use Case Facilitated Networking

Gamified Corporate Start-Up Venturing

Driving Innovation with Direct Insight from Gen Z

Hands-on Interactivity with Next Generation Technology

Strategy & Innovation Thought Leader


I had the honor of speaking at the 2020 Front End of Innovation conference, coordinated by Informa Connect. Especially in “COVID times,” when so many people suffer from video meeting and conference fatigue, the steps to engage as an attendee, let alone speaker, can seem exhausting. NOT the case with Informa Connect. The entire team was proactive, flexible, highly professional and kind. I would engage them to manage a conference our team, department or function hosted without hesitation!


At FEI: Front End of Innovation, our aim is to be an ever more sustainable, positive impact business.

We focus on the areas in which we can make the most significant contribution: our operations, the content and knowledge Informa’s brands provide and the communities in which we work. FasterForward, our five-year sustainability program contains ambitious commitments to embed sustainability into everything we do and help our customers and markets do the same.
