At the live event, each of the winners will have three minutes to present his/her innovation and then will be interviewed by a jury to flesh out their ideas with additional questions and feedback. The presentations will be lively exchanges, as entertaining as they are informative. Attendees of the Festival will select a People's Choice Innovation Award winner from the presenting companies through real-time judging utilizing a text vote via their smartphones. The winner will be announced at the reception immediately following the presentations. The winners of the two Leadership Awards will also be announced.
The Innovation Festival will be held in New York in February.
