First Innovation Festival Mannheim

From October 14 to 27, companies, start up businesses, and cultural institutions meet in Mannheim for over a dozen conferences, workshops, input sessions, hackathons, and exhibitions. Together, they want to launch a new social and economic discourse on sustainable and future-proof innovations.

Two weeks of established and new events for experts and lay people alike invited everyone who is interested in innovations and sustainability to come to Mannheim. The festival’s highlight was the symposium for sustainable innovationspeople | planet | profit, which took place on October 24, 2019. It answered the question how innovations can benefit the economy, the environment and society at the same time.

Meeting place

Hometownglory, Q 6 Q 7

Sustainability and innovation are important to many young, creative people in Mannheim. Hometownglory offered a great overview of local brands in fashion, beauty, jewellery, interior design, and art.

Located at the "Q 6 Q 7" shopping mall, a large sales area provided ample space for the concentrated creativity of the many lifestyle brands based in Mannheim.

The location also served as a meeting place, where people can chat and have a drink or a snack.
