Why Attend?

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

Join us for the 2019 US Avature Conference, which will gather more than 300 innovators in talent acquisition and people management. Over three and a half days, you’ll be able to network with peers, dive into HR strategy, discover ways to leverage Avature, and meet with Avature CEO Dimitri Boylan and other members of our team.

The upcoming conference will feature three tracks: Strategic HR in Action, the Power User Track and our new Technical Track. Strategic HR in Action sessions put customers and the Avature team in the limelight to talk through today's challenges, successes, and best practices. The Power User Track provides practical, step-by-step training to take full advantage of the Avature platform. In the Technical Track, designed for HRIS professionals, Avature technical leads will deep dive into Avature’s core system technicalities. On the last day of the Conference, we invite Admin Users to elevate their Avature knowledge in an advanced training session, where attendees can update their current Avature Specialist Certification or become certified for the first time.

On top of presentations by HR leaders and Avature team members, the Conference includes plenty of opportunities to meet and greet HR peers from around the world during sunrise exercise events, coffee breaks, outdoor lunches, and cocktail receptions.

See you in Los Angeles!

I learn more in three days at this conference than I do all year on the tool itself. It’s because you’re talking to people all day long. Overall, you’re just upping your game.
