The first IGC conference took place on the 1st of November 2010 and its venue was the Háskólabíó, lecture hall. IGC 2010 differed from the later conferences, both in its scope and objectives. In 2010, the main objective was to introduce the results of the cluster mapping phase of 2009 to 2010. The key speaker was Dr. Michael Porter, professor at the Harvard Business School, who introduced his main findings from the mapping phase.
