• Who is Innovation Forum?
    Innovation Forum is an independent London-based company with decades of collective experience in sustainability events and publishing. We research, create, and facilitate debate-driven, focused events tackling the critical business sustainability challenges around the world.

    Over the past few years we’ve created successful annual and regional events, including those focused on preventing deforestation, sustainable agriculture, human rights and modern slavery and industry specific conferences in sustainable apparel and sugar production.

  • What makes this conference different?
    Focused content designed for action and practice – the focus of the agenda and event structure are designed to provide actionable tools and practical insights that you can then apply to your own company.

    More time for genuine discussion –  the agenda and timings have been built to provide time for in-depth debate and meaningful exchange beyond introductions and superficial outlines of initiatives. There will be a lot of experience in the room and therefore we intend for the discussions to be participatory.

    Held under the Chatham House rule – this event is not intended as a PR platform – we hold the event under a covenant of confidentiality to promote honest exchange.
  • What are the objectives of this conference?
    The two days will provide business delegates with the practical tools and in-depth guidance to keep ahead of evolving legislation, proactively mitigate risk and effectively respond to discovered cases of human rights violations. 
  • Who attends?
    The 2020 conference will have 100+ delegates representing corporates, NGOs, suppliers, traders, development agencies, investors, government bodies and other relevant organisations



  • Do you offer group discounts?
    We strongly encourage delegates to join as a team to ensure you don’t miss anything across the breakouts. If you’d like to attend with two or more colleagues, we would be happy to offer a group discount. For details, please contact the conference director, Kate Chandler at kate.chandler@innovation-forum.co.uk 


  • Can I attend for just one day?
    We recommend delegates to attend for the full conference. However, in the event that you are only able to attend one day, we can provide you with a one-day pass for 65% of the current rate.
  • How can I apply to speak?
    Our speakers are selected and invited based on in-depth research into the leading organisations in the space. However, if you have an interesting program, initiative or partnership, then we would love to hear from you. 

    Please direct your inquiry to Kate Chandler at kate.chandler@innovation-forum.co.uk
  • Are there any volunteer opportunities?
    Yes, we offer a small number of places to students studying in relevant fields. We ask for some assistance over the two conference days in return for access to the conference sessions and learning opportunities. Get in touch for more details.
