The WYNnovation Summit is an annual event that brings together business owners, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders to discuss the latest trends, technologies, and strategies for success. This year's summit was no exception, and attendees were treated to an impressive lineup of keynote speakers – Dr Louise Maher, Amanda Stevens and Future Crunch - Tané Hunter and Dr Angus Harvey – who shared their insights and experience.

In addition to the keynote speeches, the event also featured an innovation expo, where local businesses showcased their latest products, services, and technologies. This provided attendees with a unique opportunity to network with other businesses, exchange ideas and collaborate on potential projects. By creating opportunities for collaboration, education and training, the festival helps to ensure that the region remains a hub of innovation and entrepreneurship.
