Venturefest Bristol and Bath 2015 returns to Bristol and Bath this year, bigger and better than ever before, to celebrate the region’s position as a global centre for innovation.

Taking place at the Passenger Shed and Engine Shed in Bristol on 9 June,  the new-look event will showcase the unrivalled innovation and investment opportunities in Bristol and Bath, which was last month named the largest digital cluster in the UK outside of London.

Venturefest enables entrepreneurs and innovators at all stages of the business lifecycle to connect with investors and thought leaders.

Headline speakers this year include Col Needham, founder and CEO of IMDb, the number 1 movie website in the world, Scott Wilcox, Director of SXSW Eco and Leo Johnson, Director of Sustainable Finance Ltd and Bristol 2015 ambassador. 

The event will also have a particular focus on the role of innovation in sustainability and green technology as Bristol celebrates its year as European Green Capital.

Those attending will benefit from access to established global companies, investors, academic inventors and some of the region’s most innovative and enterprising businesses.

The Start-Up Village will showcase 20 of the region's most promising and innovative start-ups.

Presentations will be running throughout the day from industry leaders working across the fields of Advanced Engineering, City Innovation, Digital & Creative and High Tech.
