LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards 2020

The LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards 2020 will once again celebrate the very best technology, services, digital advances and creative thinking within Leicestershire.

On Thursday, February 27, 2020 at the Morningside Arena we will be hosting a pre-awards exhibition which will provide the regions most exciting product developers and innovators to once again showcase their work to attendees and members of the public. The exhibition opens at 2:00pm and concludes at 4:30pm and is free to attend.

The main awards hosted by the BBC’s Martin Ballard will commence from 6.00pm with a red carpet drinks reception, canapes and the opportunity to hear from our 2020 finalists who will take to the SoapBox to further present their innovations.

We will also hear from our guest speaker former president of Virgin Galactic and recently appointed president of UKspace, Will Whitehorn.

As Richard Branson’s right hand man, Will took the space tourism venture, Virgin Galactic, from a vague dream to a project with real spacecraft and its own spaceport. Now involved in businesses from communication to tech to cutting-edge transport systems, including as a long-term non-exec with online estate agents Purplebricks. Will also considers brand, disruption and innovation in a world of fast-changing technology and increasing customer expectations.
