TechPoint’s Innovation Summit is coming up quickly and business professionals should buy their tickets soon because the price increases from $150 per ticket to $175 after September 22.

According to Kristee Stewart, TechPoint’s director of programming and events, this is the first year for the early-bird pricing, but it will help the organization save a great deal of money.

“The sooner we are able to submit an accurate attendee count to the Indiana Convention Center the better,” Stewart said. “In the past, we have had to wait until the very last minute to turn in attendee estimates and it has cost us and our sponsors too much money that could have been used for programming. This year, we already have more than 600 tickets sold in advance and we believe the new early-bird pricing structure is a good incentive for hundreds more to buy their tickets before the price increase goes into effect after September 22.”

Innovation Summit features keynote speaker Harvard Business professor Clayton Christensen, the author or coauthor of six books including The New York Times bestsellers “The Innovator’s Dilemma” and “The Innovator’s Solution.” In 2008, he released Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns, a groundbreaking examination of America’s education system through the lens of disruption. His latest book, The Innovator’s Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Health Care, applies the principles of disruption to the nation’s broken health care system.

Innovation Summit includes seven different breakout panels following the keynote address that feature 35 national, regional and local experts who will tackle critical issues facing Indiana life sciences, advanced manufacturing and logistics, clean-technology or clean-tech energy, information technology, education, and commercialization of academic research and development.

The full lists of speakers and panel descriptions are available on the following pages of the TechPoint Innovation Summit website (
