Attendees can also enjoy being a part of a larger audience for some of the keynote and interactive sessions.

A statement from the organisers said: “Crowd funding is transforming the way we do business.  Not just by providing access to wider sources of finance, but also through helping companies innovate, connect with their customers, build market share and create loyalty. And it’s not just start-ups who are embracing this new technology.  Increasingly, major corporations are realising that they too can benefit from this revolution, no matter what their industry.

“Specialist platforms now support everything from technology, education, charities and healthcare to infrastructure, property, consumer products and entertainment. Crowdfest is your opportunity to discover how you too can become involved and learn how crowd funding can play a key role in your business strategy. The most comprehensive event of its kind, Crowdfest will be packed with fresh ideas, opportunities and knowledge and is supported by both industry and government.”
