PLEXAL: HERE EAST INNOVATION CENTRE ENTIQ
To curate and deliver an event to mark the launch of Plexal, Europe’s largest innovation centre.
Seven Hills was charged with devising the content and theming for the Live Connected 16 event, held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at Here East.
Based on the premise of connectivity, Seven Hills convened a roster of speakers that included entrepreneurs to venture-capitalists, senior civil servants and record-breaking athletes.
Dame Sarah Storey, Britain’s greatest ever Paralympian, gave a fascinating insight into her extraordinary career and Liam Maxwell, the National Technology Adviser, discussed the challenges and opportunities of all things digital across the public sector.
A major part of the event was the showcase – an opportunity for up-and-coming start-ups to demonstrate their products and ideas. Showcase businesses included BeeLine, CanOWater and Fashbot, which entertained guests with their extraordinary designs.
Live Connected 16 brought together 800 guests who were treated to a unique preview of Plexal and the opportunities the centre will present for technologists and creatives when it opens fully in spring 2017.
