Jeanette Leeds Maister October 6, 2017

The HR Tech Conference of 2017 is back in Las Vegas for its 20th Anniversary! The conference is from October 10-13 at The Venetian Hotel and will feature more than 70 sessions covering everything HR related. Always evolving, this year the conference will feature Women in HR Technology and has added new tracks on Diversity & Inclusion, things we’re very passionate about here at WCN!

Opening Keynote Speaker, Laszlo Bock, former SVP of People Operations at Google/Alphabet will be kicking off the conference, and Josh Bersin, Principal of Bersin by Deloitte will be shutting it down. We can’t wait to hear what they have to say about all of the changes we’ve seen in HR Technology over the past year, and what’s expected to come.

We’ve pulled together a few of our own quick tips for making the most out of this three day experience. Take a look!

Artificial Intelligence, Chatbots, Machine Learning and the like will replace last year’s buzzword big data!

A lot has changed in talent acquisition technology over the course of the year. Many HR Technologies are adopting artificial intelligence into their product suites and new ones are being built!

This will be the biggest and most impressive expo floor, yet!

HR Tech Conference hosts the largest HR Tech Expo ever, where the biggest and best HR technologies come to impress and new technologies come to get their name out there! We’re thrilled to be exhibiting this year, so make sure to stop by and see us at BOOTH #2925. We’ll be conducting daily drawings to win bottles of champagne and SWAG, of course!

Interested in scheduling a time to speak with us at the conference? Book a meeting with one of our recruiting experts here! Plus: visit our e-booth to get the low-down before you come!

#HRTechConf QuickTip: Before you go, make sure to write down the booths you want to visit on this interactive floor map and don’t forget to visit us at booth #2925! We suggest prioritizing them by the ones you absolutely have to see, the ones you want to see but can do without and then any extras if you find yourself with extra time! It’s easy to get distracted when you’re in there, so having a solid plan and outlining priorities is key.
