Simon Reveley, CEO of Figment Productions who will be exhibiting for the first time at this year’s festival, said: “We’re excited to be part of this year’s Innovate Guildford to introduce people to the hub of creative development that’s growing right here in our home town.

“We’ll be bringing with us some exciting new virtual reality experiences and a group of friendly ‘figgers’ (that’s what we call our team!) to tell you all about what we do.”

Cllr David Bilbe, lead councillor for economic development and tourism said: “Guildford is a real hub for innovation and we are delighted to welcome visitors to Innovate Guildford again this year.

“It’s a chance for everyone to find out more about the exciting things going on in and around Guildford and to get involved with lots of activities and talks.”

Nikki Dormon, public engagement manager at the University of Surrey, who are taking part for the third time, added: “Innovate Guildford provides the perfect opportunity to share some of the inspirational work the University of Surrey is undertaking through research and innovation, with the young minds of the future.

“We’ve got lots of exciting exhibits and demonstrations planned this year, such as unearthing the engineering behind Lego nuclear physics, bringing a cartoon character to life and discovering the hidden sugars in everyday foods.

“Innovative thinking is shaping the future, and we always look forward to being a part of this fantastic event.”
