Each participating company gets 5 minutes on stage to impress the esteemed independent judging panel with the winner announced during the evening drinks reception.

Who can attend?

The Innovation Station is open to all delegates to attend and enter. This fast-paced, Dragons’ Den style competition promises to be an exciting and fun break in the afternoon’s networking. So ensure you don’t miss the opportunity to hear the latest industry innovation and be at the forefront of market development....

How can I enter?

Simply email Annabel Helm , Conference Development Manager, at with a (very!) brief summary of your entry outlining why you think your new service / software / hardware / marketing campaign / business model / internal reorganisation etc. deserves to be showcased at the Innovation Station .

How will it work?

Each company gets 5 minutes on stage to impress the independent judges, then the judges will have another 5 minutes to ask any questions they like of the competitors.

At the end of the Innovation Station the judges will retire to deliberate and the winner and runners up will be announced during the Capacity Balkans 2014 drinks reception.
