Sessions will be split into key themes to help attendees navigate the current challenges, solutions and latest innovations in design, through a variety of sub-themes:

+ Future Proofing - Sustainability & ESG

+ AI and the digital world - friend or foe?

+ Accessibility Evangelists – Designing for All

+ Next-gen design - engaging Gen Z

+ Help! Adapting to the cost-of-living

The Science Museum, 9 NOVEMBER

Set within the cultural heart of London, the Pentawards Festival will once again take place at the Science Museum in South Kensington, founded in 1857. Nearby you can find the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as the Natural History Museum, and it is a short distance from London's iconic Hyde Park.

The event will take place across two main areas. Our inspiring talks will take place in the impressive IMAX Cinema , which is one of only two screens in Europe to feature both the IMAX 70mm film projector and a next-generation IMAX® with Laser 4K projector. In the Flight Gallery , guests will be able to network over food and drinks, have 1-1 time with brands, and learn about new innovations in packaging.
