The Pop Up Lab is a vibrant, open plan space that lives and breathes innovation and is designed to share insights and learnings on CBA’s innovation journey and culture.

The Pop Up Lab is equipped with a ‘garage’ where clients and employees join Innovation Managers for think tank sessions to solve their biggest challenges and co-design potential solutions.
