The organizers of the U.S.-based HR Technology Conference & Exposition and the workforce-management event HR Summit & Expo Asia have teamed to produce a new HR Festival Asia in May 2019.
The two-day conference will focus on the convergence of HR and technology and how it will influence the future of work, especially in Asia-Pacific organizations. Scheduled to be held in Singapore next May 8 and 9, the organizers are targeting C-level executives, HR tech influencers and decision-makers as their audience.
Content will cover technology’s role and influence in “the new world of work,” a sizable exhibition hall and in-depth educational sessions. The festival’s general manager, Joanna Bush, said the conference will have three tracks focused on HR technology and expects to give Asian executives “a first-look at many of these advanced options helping HR to get ahead throughout the world.”
The conference is an evolution of HR Summit & Expo Asia, which has run for more than 16 years. Under the new brand, organizers said, the event will expand to host an estimated 4,000 HR and HCM tech decision-makers.
The HR Technology Conference & Exposition, being held Sept. 11 – 14 this year, is produced by LRP Conferences. It faces new competition in the Americas with the launch of UNLEASH America, which was staged in May. The HR Summit & Expo has until now been organized by HRMAsia.
