The Top Learning & HR Conferences to Attend in 2017

Emma Weber

Keen to keep track of the latest developments in learning & HR? Conferences are the place to be. Learning and connecting with the thought leaders of our profession are two of my very favourite things.

We’ve put together a calendar of the top 48 learning & HR conferences scheduled for 2017 so you can stay up to date with the latest trends.

So far my plan for 2017 includes the Learning Technologies Conference in London, the World Training & Development Congress in Mumbai, the AITD conference in Sydney, and the ATD conference in Atlanta. We’ll see where the second half of 2017 takes me! Look forward to hearing about what conferences you are heading to this year… and of course keep an eye on my blog for more conference news from the events I’m at!
