Home to the world-famous HR Tech Expo, the HR Technology Conference is undeniably the most comprehensive gathering of HR and IT professionals from around the globe! As we rev up towards our 22nd event we thought it would be a good time to fill you in on all the new and exciting Expo Hall activities currently planned that will further complement your HR Tech experience.
HR Tech Expo: World-Famous For A Reason
At the largest expo in the world of its kind — you’ll get the opportunity to touch and feel thousands of the latest innovations from more than 450 HR technology solution providers, including this year’s early Diamond sponsors: Oracle, ServiceNow, ADP, Leena AI and Conduent. Plus, you’ll have the unique opportunity to see firsthand break-through ideas from more than 50 new and emerging companies in our Startup Pavilion as you meet the entrepreneurs who are revolutionizing our market.
But, that’s not all! All new for 2019 is the Chad & Cheese Show Live coverage and Solution Provider Sessions. These great content additions will join the already robust expo agenda including the popular Pitchfest, HR Tech Talks and HR Happy Hour.
