The hottest ticket in town! Venturefest launches its programme
If the heat hasn’t got to you yet, the recently launched Venturefest 2018 programme will get you hot under the collar! “We have put together a gourmet feast of delights this year” enthused Lynn Shepherd, out-going Executive Chair of Venturefest.  “Our plan was to present a much more streamlined event focussing on our county’s four outstanding sectors of Space, Autonomous Vehicles, Digital Health and Quantum Computing.  I think we have achieved this with bells on!” Lynn went on to talk about the Brookes University robot that will greet you, the captivating driverless car and Aston Martin racing car and a host of other stunning displays and exhibits. Visitors to the event, which takes place on 12 September at Oxford Brookes University, will have the opportunity to  celebrate the very best of innovative thinking in the county through talks and presentations, competitions and networking, panel discussions and demonstrations. Each of the four sectors will be offering enlightening sessions on the technologies behind them in the morning.  In the afternoon, there is a chance to learn about the many diverse applications they give us assess to.  Did you know that one of the applications of the Quantum Computing technologies is the ability to analyse wine without opening the bottle! Come to Venturefest to learn more about it and you’ll be astounded at what else there is to discover. Two breakfast sessions open the day, which is host to a large exhibition, a competition for young businesses to pitch for funding or other help, extensive networking opportunities and a closing plenary of local experts who will lead a debate on the challenges and opportunities the four sectors present to Oxfordshire and the UK. To learn more about the programme and speakers, and to buy tickets for the event, visit venturefestoxford.com/venturefest-2018. Tickets are £25 and include complimentary travel courtesy of Oxford Bus Company, free lunch and refreshments and access to all the sessions. Students are free.
