80 Product Announcements Expected at HR Tech


More than 10,000 people are expected to flood Las Vegas next week for the annual HR Technology Conference & Exposition. While vendor home offices will be quiet, the air’s bound to fill with product and deal announcements.

Event organizer LRP Conferences said it expects more than 80 new products to be launched during the event’s run from Oct. 1 – 4. AI-powered applications will dominate for the second year in a row, LRP said, although a notable number of products focused on culture and experience will be unveiled, as well.
