The new event for 2019: the CIPD Festival of Work

We’re really excited to be exhibiting at the 2019 CIPD Festival of Work, the newly created exhibition and conference that replaces the HR Software Show and runs from the 12th to 13th June 2019.

Billed as the ‘revolutionary HR and learning event’, the Festival of Work brings together two of the CIPD’s popular free-to-attend exhibitions with a future of work focused conference that promises to equip HR professionals for the work revolution. So, what is the Festival of Work, and why should you attend?

Why should you attend?

Two shows under one roof

The event brings together the hugely popular HR Software Show (HRSS) and the Learning and Development Show. It is the perfect opportunity to make contacts and update your knowledge.

Four learning stages

Mixed in with the exhibition stands are the free learning stages, each with a different theme: Future of Work, HR Technology, Learning and Development and Talent, Skills and Capabilities

One future-focused conference

The paid for conference offers attendees the choice of six content streams with presentations and case studies covering all aspects of modern human resources management.

Beat the queue

It can get really busy, especially during the middle of the day. So, if you are looking for the latest configurable HR software, why not beat the queue and pre-book your demo now? One of our friendly consultants will be happy to introduce you to the Cezanne HR system and answer your questions.
