In today’s rapidly changing business environment, HR—and the technology that powers it—is at the forefront of organizational strategy like never before. And as digital advancement accelerates that strategy, a global mindset is increasingly becoming a must-have for growth.
It is in that vein that Human Resource Executive and the organizers of the HR Technology Conference & Exposition® this week announced they are expanding the reach of the event overseas, with the inaugural HR Technology Conference Europe. The event will be held May 2-3, 2024, in Amsterdam.
Earlier this year, European-based global events, data and media platform Arc completed its acquisition of the conference, Human Resource Executive and other products from LRP Media Group. The HR portfolio is now organized under the name ETC.
HR Tech—where innovation is unveiled
Held for more than 25 years, HR Tech—the world’s longest-running HR technology event—brings together tens of thousands of HR and technology experts from around the globe annually, including a significant segment of European professionals. HR Tech Europe will mark the first time an incarnation of the event will be held outside of the U.S.
Rebecca McKenna, senior vice president, HR Portfolio at ETC, says the new conference is designed to offer the same level of expertise and innovation, with a particular focus on the tools and trends impacting European employers.
“HR Tech is where relationships are forged, deals are made and innovative technologies unveiled,” McKenna says. “The addition of HR Technology Conference Europe makes these opportunities more accessible to our overseas audience and will further grow our existing global community as we shape the future of work together.”
Like the U.S.-based event, HR Tech Europe, which is expected to draw about 4,000 people in its first year, will include an expansive expo hall of HR technology vendors. Admission to the expo only is free, and attendees can also take advantage of discounted passes to the full conference.
More details on speakers and sessions will be announced in the coming months. For more information on HR Tech Europe, email [email protected].
