innov8-Live is the latest event organised by International Conference and Events specialist - innov8.

In 2018 we undertook a review of our business events and in particular those that supported the Greater Manchester Business community. We listened to the feedback from our attendees who attended our business Expo's, Conferences, Awards and Charity Fundraisers. One over-riding theme came through all our conversations - that Businesses wanted to network with other Businesses but were fed up of the same tired models of Speed Networking and walking around an Exhibition Hall. Both our partners and attendees wanted a new event to help them meet new business partners, supplier and clients.

On the 18th January we decided to discontinue our series of Business Expos - The Cheshire, Stockport and Trafford Business Expo and instead launch "innov8-Live" a series of Business Events held at iconic venues across Greater Manchester. These events will not just incorporate Business to Business networking for both attendees and our partners, but also incorporate more of a Social Element to the evening to ensure that we deliver a truly iconic experience to each event.

Our first event will be held in Heaven of Hotel Football on the 4th May 2018, the event is strictly for Business only and you will be asked to confirm yours and your companies details on registration. 

If you would like to become a partner of one or several "innov8-Live" events and be given an opportunity to promote your organisation at the event, contact the team for details of the opportunities available at each event.
