Next year, the LCRIG Innovation and Learning Festival will return from 01-03 July 2024, but with some exciting changes including a brand new location!

As the LCRIG Innovation and Learning Festival continues to grow, we are excited to announce that next year’s event will be moving to NAEC Stoneleigh, Warwickshire.

Set in over 250 acres of picturesque countryside and home to some of the largest outdoor events in the UK, NAEC Stoneleigh offers an extensive outdoor flexible space and unique off-road track, THE perfect setting to showcase your new innovative products and services. We can’t wait to see what exciting ideas our innovators will come up with for the space!

Our new venue is also ideally, centrally located, just off the M40 and within 30 minutes drive of Birmingham and Coventry, with good road, rail and air access links.

This year’s Festival saw more than 600 people from 180+ organisations gather together over two days to explore the latest technologies from across the highways sector. Innovations in all shapes and sizes, from a giant robotic roller to specialist handles for wheelbarrows were demonstrated, giving attendees the opportunity to witness innovation in action.

Alongside the new venue, there will be more changes announced over the coming months. Although it will be music to your ears to hear that amazing street food and live music will still be on the menu! We will be announcing more details for next year’s festival soon so stay tuned to our channels to find out more!

Don’t miss out! 97% of respondents to this year’s post event feedback survey said that they would recommend the Innovation Festival to their colleagues and 98% said they would return next year… So, don’t miss your chance to be a part of next year’s even bigger and better event!
