    Why Attend?

    Would you like to gain fresh insight on tackling recruitment and talent management challenges from your peers at leading global organizations?

    The 2018 US Avature Conference will bring together more than 300 of the best minds in Talent Acquisition, People Management and HR from around the globe. Over three and a half days, you’ll have the opportunity to dive into HR strategy, network with your peers, discover ways to leverage Avature in support of your goals, and have a chance to meet members of the Avature team and CEO Dimitri Boylan.

    As in 2017, the 2018 Conference will be divided into two tracks: Strategic HR in Action and the Power User Track. The Strategic HR in Action Track will give participants insight into recruiting and talent management initiatives used by top global companies and thought leaders. In the Power User Track, participants will learn best practices and get practical, step-by-step training to take advantage of Avature features. On the final day of the Conference, Admin Users will be able to take their Avature knowledge to the next level by getting certified for the first time or updating their current Avature Specialist Certification by participating in an advanced training session.

    In addition to presentations from HR leaders and Avature team members, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking over coffee breaks and cocktail receptions.

    See you in Miami!

    I think presenting was most likely my favorite moment. (…) I really liked the conversation it triggered afterwards, being approached by different people – it makes you feel that the work you do throughout the year is actually also helping other people outside of your own organization. It’s a really cool moment in the Conference.
