This year’s Australian Innovation Festival will show thousands of businesses how to use ideas to prosper as we continue to recover from the global recession.

The festival started yesterday (April 26) and runs until the end of May. It is expected to attract 400,000 participants to over 650 events Australia wide.

“Australia has come through the global recession in remarkable shape but we should not underestimate the challenges that our businesses face in these changing and still difficult times,” Innovation Minster and Festival Co-Chair Senator Kim Carr said.

“Businesses must embrace new ideas and new ways of operating.

“Research and innovation are the keys to success in a highly competitive environment. They are not a luxury to be cast aside in difficult times.

“Investing in innovative thinking today will create high-skill, high-wage jobs for our children and grandchildren.

“This is the largest festival of its type in Australia and I encourage all businesses to get involved and take as much as they can out of the many events on offer.

“Almost every major town and city in Australia has an event and the diversity and breadth of the activities on offer means that there is something on offer for everyone.”

Event details are available at www.ausinnovation.org.
