ICA to host an innovation exhibition that kicks off a global movement on May 9, 2013.

Innovation Economy Expo recently announced a collaborative partnership with the International Commercialization Alliance (ICA), a consortium of commercialization stakeholders representing members in 18 countries.

ICA is hosting the Innovation Pavilion at the expo taking place on May 9, 2013 at the Ontario Convention Center in Southern California. Serving as a global stage for innovative technologies, products and services, the Innovation Pavilion will exhibit and spotlight innovative technologies, products and services from around the world that are moving through or stepping into the commercialization process.

Innovation Economy Expo is a global community of business stakeholders coming together to create high-growth business opportunities by exchanging knowledge and ideas, creating projects, building teams and sharing international commercialization resources.

“New wealth, new jobs and new prosperity come from those who work together for the success of innovative high-growth businesses, and it is all about taking good ideas to market,” said Mario Thomas, founding Chairman at International Commercialization Alliance.

“Innovation Economy Expo is combining people, ideas and resources to create global business opportunities, and we are proud to be one of a growing number of participating stakeholders who are advancing the cause,” he added.

The mission of Innovation Economy Expo is threefold:

  • To promote a culture of international collaboration by linking innovators and entrepreneurs and connecting them with those who provide the services and resources they need for growth;
  • To connect educators and students with businesses to advance the commercialization of innovative research and technologies, as well as to help them stay in step with the needs of an ever-changing global business environment; and
  • To engage policy-makers in a dialogue on the economic and social benefits of high-growth business success and promote policies to advance free trade and global economic growth.

“Linking innovators and entrepreneurs and helping connect them with investors, service-providers, educators and policymakers, is the first step in creating a sustainable high-growth economy,”said Norman Wolfe, Chairman and CEO of Quantum Leaders, and best-selling author of “The Living Organization: Transforming Business to Create Extraordinary Results.

“Innovation Economy Expo’s participating stakeholders are risk-takers, forward-thinkers and doers who are coming together to promote economic growth, not only for those directly involved, but for society as a whole,” said Wolfe, who also serves as a member of the Innovation Economy Expo Advisory Committee .

All who are interested and have something to gain from the effort are encouraged to participate. Visit or call 888-960-EXPO for more information.
