The event is co-organised by tfconnect and UFI. It brings together the biggest names in the worldwide Events Industry for top-quality networking, high-level content and entertainment, and is exclusively for board-level executives of global exhibition and event organising companies and venues.

The event offers top-level content, company strategy sessions and invaluable opportunities for delegates to grow their global networks – all in a relaxed environment.

hrconnect is a half-day event, exclusively put together for HR professionals who support the exhibitions and events industry.

It occurred to us that the various HR Directors in our industry didn’t know their counterparts. The next question was – could they learn from one-another? The answer has been a resounding yes!

A year later, we have run five, fun and very successful HR Group meetings, where a core group of industry HR leaders have shaped the agenda to what’s top priority for them at the moment. Topics covered have included auto-enrolment implementation, staff retention rates, psychometric testing, internships, TUPE, Pay Structures, Employee Benefits Packages and much more.

As word has spread, and the list of interested parties keeps growing, we decided it was time for a proper event!
