Challenge & Change the Way You Innovate at FEI 2012


What is the Front End of Innovation (#FEI12) conference?

There is no ONE defining characteristic. It the combination of exceptional keynotes, powerful content, and distinctive experiences that make FEI the world leader in advancing innovation.

But, with all the conference options out there, we know it can be confusing. If you're deciding between FEI and any other innovation event, we've made it our responsibility to help you understand what makes FEI a truly unique, one-of-a-kind experience.
  • Celebrate Collaboration and Co-Creation. Other conferences focus on what’s already been done. FEI’s all new CHALLENGE & CHANGE sessions leverage the collective intelligence of our fabulous attendees. After each session, work together to create a powerpoint that will be immediately distributable to your colleagues when you leave the event.
  • Client Side Shows Up Big. In 2011, 75% of participants came from the client side, making the connections, story-telling, and best practice learning that much more valuable.
  • Mentor Program. If you're a first-timer, get paired with a veteran who can show you the ropes and help you maximize your experience.
  • Big Name Keynotes Mixed with Real-World Industry Case Studies. Innovation guru’s like Phil Duncan, Global Chief Design Officer at P&G * Jeff Dyer, Author, The Innovator’s DNA * and Chris Anderson, Editor-in-chief, Wired Magazine deliver expertise through storytelling, while real-world practitioners make the content actionable.
  • Remove Boundaries between Speakers and Attendees. There are no hierarchies at FEI. Everyone at the event is a senior leader with something to contribute. Choose from 8 different learning formats that encourage sharing, collaboration, and interactivity.
  • Unique Speakers that Inspire you Personally AND Professionally. FEI goes beyond the typical corporate case study. Hear from innovators like Brian Hart, who lost his son to a roadside ambush in Iraq, and created an affordable robot that defuses bombs so the troops don't have to. The result? Popular Science's "Best of What's next" and "Top 100 Innovations of the Year".
  • Six Conferences in One. FEI offers more options to customize your agenda. Benefit from 4 full-day Monday Summits: the annual Voc Summit, the annual Portfolio Management Summit, the all New Trends & Technology Summit, the all new Co-Creation Summit, OR a full day workshop on A Universal Framework for the Front End of Innovation.
  • Unmatched Pre-Event Networking. Other events post a list of attendees on-site. We allow you to connect beforehand with a unique facebook-like online program where you can see who else will be there, set up meetings with attendees, and ask questions of speakers BEFORE you arrive.
Each year FEI celebrates the power of collective intelligence by creating an environment that empowers innovators to have the confidence to contribute meaningfully. No other event exists that attacks present and future challenges through content rich conservations and collaboration.
