SUMMIT Overview

The unique, hosted format of HR Tech Connect Summit, conducted in an upscale resort setting provides an engaging platform for keynotes, presentations, panel discussions, fireside chats and small group boardroom discussions to help attendees stay innovative and forward thinking HR Tech Connect helps attendees accelerate HR digital transformation within the enterprise.

HR Tech Connect is the ideal event for HR, talent and technology decision makers as we focus on the complete transformation of HR technology within the enterprise. General sessions will involve vital topics such as the emergence of new HR Tech trends including AI, automation and evolution from legacy HRIS to best in class apps for each HR function.

What is a hosted conference?

At HR Tech Connect attendees are hosted, which means that complimentary airfare, hotel, airport transfers, meals and registration costs are provided to all qualified attendees in appreciation for their time spent out of office. We understand that time away from the office can be hard to justify, especially when there are high costs associated with attending traditional conferences. The hosted invitation gives attendees the unique opportunity to participate without any added expenses or strained travel budgets. From the perspective of an sponsor, the hosted invitation allows HR Tech Connect to invite a select audience of HR and talent professionals to discuss strategy, solutions and build relationships in a more intimate and business friendly setting than a large trade show or expo hall.

2020 Key Themes Include:

  • The Future of Work In The Age Of AI
  • Transforming the Candidate Experience for Far-Reaching Business Impacts
  • Driving a Culture of Success with Innovative Technology
  • The Power Of Employee Experience to Build a High Performance Workplace
  • AI & Intelligent Automation is Benefiting HR
  • How Analytics are Delivering Insights Throughout the Enterprise
  • Intelligent Self Service Platforms-the Future for Employee Experience


HR Tech Connect offers strategic-level insights into how these investments will improve recruitment, engagement, workforce productivity, operational efficiency, workforce experience and wellness. Key aspects include:

Keynotes, Fireside Chats, Panels and General Sessions:

HR Tech Connect keeps things simple by having only one conference track to focus on. Attendees will sit in on a variety of sessions covering the latest topics, industry news and respected insights from leading solution providers, industry experts and end user executives.

Case Study Boardroom Sessions:

These highly interactive smaller group sessions presented by solution providers to an intimate group of executives give an inside perspective on the implementation and strategy of an actual customer use case. These sessions not only provide the vendors with feedback on end user wants/needs, but also promote candid discussions for end users to gain perspective from their peers within various industries.

1:1 Meetings:

Our 1:1 Meeting Zone allows our end user attendees, solution providers, and industry experts the perfect opportunity to connect with one another for 20 minute face-to-face meetings, which makes sourcing solutions painless for our executive attendees and makes connecting with prospective clientele cost-effective for our sponsors. Respected industry analysts and experts will also be present to discuss strategy and to help you move your roadmap forward. Attendees customize their own schedule prior to the event in order to maximize their time spent onsite.

Networking Receptions:

Connections can be made at a traditional trade show, but with our unique format, lasting relationships are forged through a multitude of networking opportunities. Attendees are able to network over 2 days and dive more deeply into discussions that cannot be had walking a trade show floor. We believe that quality over quantity adds a higher value to the conversations had, because only qualified attendees are invited to attend and only vendors that are capable of delivering solutions to major enterprises are eligible to sponsor.
