We know how much work it takes to create and launch a new proposition. And that’s why each year we take time to celebrate and recognise the best in big business innovation at the Market Gravity Corporate Entrepreneur Awards (CEA).

This Thursday, the 23rd November 2017, over 300 corporate innovators from over 100 of the world’s biggest brands will gather at the Design Museum, London for the 8th annual Market Gravity Corporate Entrepreneur Awards (CEA) party.

Here’s a taste of what’s to come on the night!

Deloitte Digital TechZone – Building the Future of Experience

There’s a new TechZone to be explored this year where the possibilities of the latest tech and its impact on business will come alive! Guests will discover the future of an immersive and enhanced experience through Deloitte Digital’s emerging technology and trend showcases.

The Connected Supply Chain is an industry agnostic demonstrator that every business can relate to.
