Choose Your Experience

One of the best things about our virtual HR conference is how flexible the experience is. To begin with, it couldn’t be more convenient to view. You can watch it at work, curled up on a comfy couch at home, or on the go—wherever there’s internet access (and maybe something yummy to snack on).

With so many sessions to choose from, you might wonder where to begin. After you register, watch your email inbox for the official HR Virtual Summit agenda, so you can check out the speakers in advance and highlight the ones you want to see.

During the event, it’s easy to customize your virtual experience with our handy dashboard. You can change speakers, switch views, and participate in real-time conversations during the presentations. From start to finish, you’re in control.

There will be ample opportunities to share practical knowledge about effective strategies, best practices, industry trends, and more.

Gain Insights from Other HR Professionals

In addition to hearing from our distinguished speakers at HR Virtual Summit, you’ll be able to meet and learn from peers. With tens of thousands of HR professionals attending, there will be ample opportunities to share practical knowledge about effective strategies, best practices, industry trends, and more.

Earn Recertification Credits Free

We’re submitting all of our 60+ HR Virtual Summit sessions to HRCI and SHRM. You could earn one hour of recertification credits for each full hour of qualifying presentations you attend on October 8 and by watching them on demand from October 12–30.

Win Prizes, Too!

When we asked ourselves what else we could do to make HR Virtual Summit a day to remember, the first thing we thought was, “Give fun prizes away!” So, that’s what we’re doing!

Everyone who attends will have a chance to win your choice of bucket list experiences from Blueboard, a corporate rewards & recognition company.

It’s easy and fun! We’ll draw prize winners at random from everyone on the leaderboard. Check the leaderboard on the day of the event for details.
