WINN – Worcestershire Innovative Network
It’s not every day that an event company such as ourselves get to be in at the very beginning and indeed play a small but important part in the inauguration and continuation of a brand new incentive from the very best innovators in Worcestershire such as QinetiQ, Malvern Hills Science Park, Central Technology Belt, Birmingham Science City, Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, University of Worcester and a forward thinking Worcestershire County Council.
One can ask the world – “What does the Combi Boiler in your home, Liquid Crystals in your TV and advanced Military Radar protecting your country, all have in common?” – It may surprise you to know that they were all invented in Worcestershire and it is with that fact in mind these very clever people have set about collaborating to insure the innovative history of Worcestershire continues unabated.
WINN is a new collaboration between many of the innovators of the region and is aimed at consolidating innovation support activities and creating an active community of innovators in the region.
WINN Wednesday is WINN’s networking channel, meeting twice a month, providing a “link to’ and a ‘link for’ innovation communities: it will provide avenues for assistance, inspire new ideas, introduce people and businesses as well as raising awareness and launching opportunities.
Mercian Events won a competitive bid to provide creative ideas and full technical support for 12 months, initially to launch and introduce WINN to a wide discerning and very professional audience at the prestigious University Arena in Worcester. In addition, Mercian Events will be playing an important role in the bi-monthly meetings and at a number of additional events due to held during the 12-month period at various venues throughout Worcestershire.
