Event FAQs

Who comes to this event?

Impact is designed expressly for corporate innovation, strategy, emerging tech, and R&D professionals. That’s everyone from Chief Innovation Officers and VPs of Innovation, to Directors of Innovation and R&D Managers. If you’re responsible for new products or services inside your company, you’re probably the right fit.

Where does Impact 2020 take place?

We're hosting this year's conference on the Swapcard conference platform (more info here), which allows you to see who else is participating, send them messages, connect with sponsors, and even schedule 1 on 1 video meetings with other participants and sponsors. It also allows you to ask questions during our "mainstage" sessions. Breakout sessions happen in Zoom, and we're using two other platforms, Remo and RunTheWorld, to host random networking parties where you can meet other participants for unstructured chats, just like you would at one of our in-person gatherings. If you already have a ticket for Impact 2020, here's the place to enter the conference.

Can I get a refund?

Event ticket purchases are final. However, you may substitute or transfer your registration to a colleague up to the day before the event — just let us know by emailing so we have the new participant's contact info.

What is the code of conduct at your events?

We are dedicated to creating a professional, safe, welcoming, and harassment-free environment for all our attendees. Please see our complete code of conduct here.

Will you bore me with PowerPoints?

No. We're intentionally light on slides, though some speakers do use visuals at our virtual events to make their practices and ideas more concrete.

Will the media be there?

No. All our sessions are confidential and designed for the benefit of participants.

What is Innovation Leader?

If you’re working to make change happen inside a large organization, Innovation Leader was created especially for you.

We create downloadable templates and tools; report on what the world’s best companies are doing; and convene your peers to share best practices, in conference calls, webcasts, and at live events. Everything we do is geared to helping you deliver impact in your organization, whether you work in strategy, R&D, new ventures, design, technology, or innovation.
