Wrapping up: What (Tech) Recruiting Conference to Attend?

2023 will give sources and recruiters across the world many opportunities to grow their skills and stay up to date with the current industry trends.

If you are located in Europe or have a planned business trip, you could attend some of the best conferences that are coming back this year. The most event-intensive European hubs are Amsterdam (TRC 2023, SOSU Europe), Berlin (Tech Rec 2023, RecBuzz Conference), and London (HR Technologies, HR Vision). Pricing varies from hundreds to thousands of euros depending on the specific conference and the chosen package. Some events may be quite costly because of additional options you don’t need (hotel, transfer, etc.) That is why we suggest you carefully look through the keynote speaker list and agendas to choose the most valuable event for you.

For those who can’t attend the specific event in person, many conferences have the option of virtual attendance. TRC 2023 Amsterdam, SourceCon (San Diego), SOSU Europe (Amsterdam) are examples of hybrid events. You can have the same experience as online attendees by attending these events, but you’ll be located wherever you want.

Also, there are a lot of events for the HR and the staffing community that may be relevant for recruiters, such as the Future of HR Forum, Talent Summit, HR Technologies, and others. So, if you want to dive into these fields and expand your network even further, you have a great choice of events, from in-person to hybrid and virtual.

We’ll continue keeping an eye on the most insightful recruiting conferences and update this list as soon as something new and exciting comes up.
