It was an “un-user” conference. Everything was geared toward personal and professional growth and how we can all collectively advance our industry. The content was simply incredible.

The Future of HR

For two days, some of the brightest and most innovative minds in HR and technology will be in the same place to discuss the future of business as we know it. We are already beginning to see the impact of disruptive technology in the HR world, especially with artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive analytics, and other features like bots. The advancements we are seeing from a year ago to the present are just the tip of the iceberg, and the future of HR and disruptive technology will look very different by the year 2020.

Why Attend? From Our CEO

Our agenda will provide a cutting-edge experience with amazing speakers, networking with peers, and the ability to see the exciting new features and updates on the horizon.
