It’s been five years since we launched Innotribe@Sibos, and once again we have put together a comprehensive programme; a spectacular series of memorable, highly-interactive immersive learning experiences.
This year, we’re taking a slightly different approach, by moving away from presenting topics to building actual capabilities. The reality and speed of change in our industry needs new ways of thinking, so we’ll help you adapt, address and respond to situations which simply cannot be tackled using traditional linear thinking. It’s time to move beyond polarizing conversations to providing a forum for critical dialogue, leading to a richer set of choices and better decision-making.
Our 2013 Innotribe program introduces the concept of “journeys”. Just like the metro or underground, you can build your “journey” along different coloured lines or tracks, depending on your expertise, interests, learning objectives, and availability. The Innotribe metro-map gives you an overview of the different tracks available; sessions labelled as “toolkits” are practical sessions to learn new methods of thinking, and in other sessions you can apply the knowledge and methods you’ve learned to our industry. It’s your journey, so you can hop on and off the Innotribe train at specific switching stations of your choice.
Set just off the concord, the main thoroughfare between the exhibition and conference rooms, the Innotribe Space will be accessible through a long tunnel. This stand-alone tunnel will submerge you in a lively, cool, artsy atmosphere with a whole range of content linked to the sessions taking place in the Innotribe space.
The tunnel will also serve as a backdrop to various installations showing advanced applications such as augmented reality, context-aware spaces and much more. Each day will have a different theme using visuals, music and artistic styles to create unique atmospheres. We’ll have live performances (music) and art installations, and during the breaks, you’ll be able to listen to short sessions, power talks or demos. The Innotribe Space itself feels like a “studio”, especially designed to co-discover, co-create and co-deliver solutions for our future.
Our program would not be complete without the third edition of the Innotribe Startup Challenge 2013 and a tribal closing session “around the campfire”.
With your help, we can make this year’s slogan “There is light at the end of the tunnel” a reality. Come, join us, and help us shape a new future at Sibos in Dubai.
