Innovation Zone

This year also sees the return of our Innovation Zone, an interactive space where individuals and organisations present their inspiring ideas. The theme for this year's Innovation Zone is 'Resilience and renewal', recognising the significant challenges councils have faced in the last two years, as well as casting an eye on the future and how councils can continue to deliver the best for their communities.
