Choosing the right event for you 

With so many HR conferences around the world, it can seem overwhelming to pick just one. However, each is a great opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and learn new skills.

Consider what workshops, speakers, or features are most important to you, your organization, and your learning development. Compare and contrast different events and select one that makes the most of your time and investment.

But don’t fret if you can’t make it to your dream conference. Most offer virtual tickets or post their videos, slides, and presentations at the end of the event. Connect with other attendees through Facebook or LinkedIn groups and you can still connect with individuals at the conference!
