An all-day speaker series in Bowling Green this week is dedicated to encouraging participants to make their innovative ideas a reality.
IdeaFestival Bowling Green is being held this Friday at the Downing Student Union Auditorium on WKU’s campus. The school’s Innovate Kentucky Executive Administrator, Josh Raymer, says some of the topics discussed at this year’s event will include cancer research, branding and imaging, and making online content more social.
“And what we love is that these speakers all come from Kentucky, or neighboring states. So it truly is an example for everyone that these big ideas that you see in New York, or Los Angeles, or Chicago—they’re also happening right here in Kentucky.”
Another topic that will be addressed by several speakers is the future of the automotive industry.
“A lot of Corvette tie-ins, which is appropriate, given that it’s IdeaFestival Bowling Green,” said Raymer. “But once again, that’s about how important it is to stay on the cutting edge of innovation, especially in a hyper-competitive field like the automotive industry.”
The Bowling Green event is an off-shoot of the IdeaFestival held in Louisville each fall since 2000.
