“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” is a saying that’s attributed to Lao Tzu, an ancient philosopher. If your manufacturing or technology company wants to move confidently into the future, now is the time to find the way forward. The New York State Innovation Summit, an in-person event that’s scheduled for November 8 and 9 at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York, can provide you with a view of advanced technologies and the vantage point of world-class resources.
What You’ll Experience
Whether you register as an attendee or register as an exhibitor, you’ll be part of the premiere event for New York State’s innovation system. From advanced manufacturing and advanced materials to cleantech, energy, and environmental innovations, you can explore technologies that accelerate growth and create new business opportunities. Digital technology, life sciences and biotechnology, and nanotechnology, electronics, optics, and photonics will all be on the menu as well.
The New York State Innovation Summit is hosted by NYSTAR, Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation, and by FuzeHub, your statewide Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) center. The event’s sponsors include the Central New York Biotech Accelerator at Upstate Medical University and Mohawk Valley Edge. In addition to presentations by industry experts and insightful panel discussions, you’ll enjoy exclusive access to an exhibit hall with cutting-edge companies.
Staying Safe and Healthy
The event organizers are closely monitoring the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and will follow New State guidelines to help ensure your health and safety. The event’s location, Turning Stone Resort, has a hospital-grade air turnover system and plenty of space to support some physical distancing. This Central New York resort has safely hosted in-person events since June and all staff members who handle food will be masked.
Participants in the New York State Innovation Summit may communicate their level of comfort in social interactions by selecting a red, yellow, or green sticker for their name badge. A red sticker indicates “no contact, please,” a yellow sticker invites elbow bumps and conversation, and a green sticker welcomes handshakes. Event registration fees are refundable until October 15th and qualifying companies may be eligible for a special discount on exhibitor registration fees.
