Estados Unidos y Reino Unido continúan a la cabeza como motores líderes de la innovación global en contenido y distribución. Solo en Reino Unido, la industrias creativas exportaron un valor de más de 8.000 millones de libras (13.000 millones de dólares) de servicios en 2009 y facturaron el 10,6% de todas las exportaciones de Reino Unido. El gobierno británico está apoyando los servicios creativos de Reino Unido a través de su campaña GREAT. La campaña GREAT muestra a Reino Unido como un destino de clase mundial para los negocios, la inversión, la educación y el turismo. Se lanzó para los Juegos Olímpicos y Paralímpicos de Londres 2012 y se extenderá hasta 2015.

"Tanto si es una compañía digital de reciente creación, capitalista de riesgo o de contenido implicada en el desarrollo empresarial propio, es fundamental que piense y actúe de forma global," dijo Grainge. "De ninguna otra manera se consigue más que mediante la colaboración. El Innovation Forum es un esfuerzo para fomentar lazos más fuertes entre los empresarios nuevos y los establecidos de Estados Unidos y Reino Unido. Creo que los lazos internacionales no solo serán reforzados, sino que también emergerán importantes coloboraciones innovadoras de este encuentro sin precedentes."

El senador Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) dijo, "No hay mejor momento para reunirse los empresarios e innovadores americanos y británicos. Espero que este encuentro en California produzca una amplia gama de asociaciones online y móviles de éxito  que enriquezcan a los consumidores de todo el mundo."

"Se trata de una oportunidad excelente para dos grandes industrias, la creativa y la de ocio, para reunirse y representar lo mejor de Reino Unido y Estados Unidos para establecer relaciones más profundas y emprender desarrollo empresarial," comentó Lord Marland, presidente de Prime Minister's Business Ambassadors and Trade Envoys.

Jonathan Goodwin y Brent Hoberman – cofundadores de Founders Forum - comentaron: "El Innovation Forum es un importante evento establecido en un momento crítico con el objetivo de hacer crecer los negocios.
