This year’s conference offers more than 50 sessions presented by HR professionals and other subject matter experts. Sessions may be delivered in three ways: in-person, via livestream from the in-person presentation, or virtual-only.
Attending in Person? You Won’t Miss a Thing!
New this year: All sessions, including keynotes, will be recorded and shared with full-conference attendees after the conference, so you can catch any sessions you missed in National Harbor. Please note that one-day conference registrants will not have access to video content after the conference.
As an in-person attendee, you have two options for learning during each concurrent session.
- Option #1 – Attend an in-person session
- Option #2 – Watch a virtual-only session on the virtual conference platform
Session descriptions are organized in three ways (presentations that are virtual-only are designated as such in the session description):
By Concurrent Session
By HR Track
Attending Online? Join Us for These Sessions!
As an online conference attendee, you can choose to watch virtual sessions and/or designated sessions being livestreamed from National Harbor. Simply log in to the virtual conference platform at the appropriate time and choose the session you want to attend.
Note: Recordings of ALL of the conference sessions, including those that are not livestreamed, will be available to virtual conference registrants after the conference.
Here are the concurrent sessions that will be available virtually or via livestream during the conference.
