Learnovation 2022 – The Future of Learning is Now

After two years of hosting our annual summit Learnovation online we are delighted to be returning to an in-person event in one of Ireland’s premier venues, Croke Park in Dublin on 20th October 2022. We are looking forward to hosting a stellar line up of speakers with a schedule that will have something for everyone from the sectors that we work with – schools, third level and corporate.  This year’s theme “The Future of Learning is Now” will focus on the huge strides made in the world of learning in the last two years and will examine the trends we can expect in this area into the future.

Our 2022 global learning summit will run over one day from 09:00 to 5:30 IST with international keynotes, expert panels, Q&A sessions, workshops and networking with other attendees from all over the world. We are also looking forward to hosting a closing party in Croke Park after the days activities where we can meet and relax in a convivial setting.
