The Innovation Conference and Showcase (IC&S), organised by the Houston Technology Center, is Houston’s premier conference and exhibition for early stage technologies.
Following the success of UNIHEAT’s participation in IC&S 2014, the UNIHEAT team showcased the project’s latest technologies at the Innovation Conference and Showcase 2015 (IC&S) on the 6th October in Houston, Texas.
The event brought together innovative minds with speakers who think outside the box, and an exhibition with high tech startups.
The event kicked-off with three keynote speakers, Walter O’Brien, Alie Ward and Brian Meece, who offered insights from their own entrepreneurial experiences. Following the main conference program, attendees could visit our stand in the exhibition hall to discuss the UNIHEAT technologies with the project team.
This was a good opportunity for the UNIHEAT team to connect with a diverse group of entrepreneurs, technologists, business leaders, industry executives, investors, and innovation experts.

Useful discussions continued in the following days with the Houston Technology Centre, with which UNIHEAT has an innovative collaboration agreement.
