CloserStill Media has launched a new exhibition and conference, HR Technologies UK, taking place at ExCeL London in May 2023.
HR Technologies UK will be co-located with CloserStill Media’s established Learning Technologies event, which this year hosted more than 9,000 visitors, 220 exhibitors and 200 speakers. Both exhibitions are free to attend, and HR Technologies UK visitors will also have access to Learning Technologies, and vice versa.
CloserStill said in a statement that there was a “huge market” for HR and recruitment technology, but until now there was no dedicated event in the sector.
Nick Powell, managing director of HR Technologies, said: “The transformation occurring in HR tech is incredibly exciting. With a blend of HR decision-makers, global brands, technology buyers, and a show floor of technology suppliers providing tomorrow’s HR solutions, we at HR Technologies UK aim to create an ever-evolving eco-system that will drive innovation, creativity, and shape tomorrow’s workplace.”
Powell continues, emphasising that for suppliers, “HR Technologies UK offers a direct route to decision makers and their teams – the very professionals responsible for deciding which products and services are to be used within their companies”. “Our conference programme will feature some of the most exciting and disruptive brands and bring thought leaders together, to discuss the most pertinent topics that need to be addressed by organisations in the evolution of their HR operations.”
Industry leaders welcomed the event.
Matt Hudson, people director at Wagamama, said the event was “exactly the type of event that myself and so many other UK people professionals have needed.”
“It will be the perfect place to source people tech for the workforce of today.”
Exhibitors will offer technological solutions within the areas of Operations & Services, Recruitment & Talent Acquisition, Talent Retainment & Nurturement and Corporate Health & Wellbeing.
Bookings are now open for businesses wishing to exhibit at HR Technologies UK. Those who would like to nominate themselves or peers in the industry to speak at the conference should also contact the HR Technologies UK team.
