In 2019, Cohort delivered Horizon 2.0, a two day popup innovation lab built for the $5 billion Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct.

With support from Lumina, the City of Gold Coast, and our event and precinct partners, Cohort curated a powerful series of presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities designed to showcase the remarkable capabilities of the Gold Coast Health & Knowledge Precinct.

Welcome to a new horizon.

On behalf of Cohort and Lumina, I would like to thank all partners, sponsors and participants of the 2019 Horizon 2.0 Popup Innovation Lab. At Horizon 2.0, attendees experienced cutting edge technology, world-class speakers, facilitated workshops and an array of networking events.

The event was a celebration of the contributions each partner makes to the ongoing evolution of our precinct. By stepping out of our individual mindset and into a shared environment – we collectively moved beyond the horizon and into a space for new opportunity.

I look forward to building the next installment of this event for 2020.

Ben Howe
CEO, Cohort
