This carefully constructed and challenging conference is part of the HVM Series that has been running since 2002. One objective is to look at business models and positioning for companies making or buying functional materials for large market applications such as in consumer electronics or health. We hope to surprise you with the potential here and that it will be an enjoyable, stimulating and possibly controversial conference discussion!

The event also has format innovations in 2014 such as full audience 'reverse' sessions for ideas, comments and questions to ensure all relevant issues are covered by listening chairman, moderators, speakers and panellists. It is an event for entrepreneurs, executives and experts, and those updating or learning about these markets and their potential. There are pleasant private meeting spaces at the Said Business School. Each session ends with coffees or lunch or drinks and more networking & showcase! The quality of the speakers is outstanding and there are many new players at the event this time. Places are limited for this high-level event. 

We hope to see you there on the day!

Best regards - Justin, Maya, Michael - CIR
