Wrapping up: What (Tech) Recruiting Conference to Attend?
2022 gives sources and recruiters many opportunities to improve their skills and stay up to date with the current industry trends.
If you are in Europe or will arrive on business, consider attending some of the most interesting in-person events in Amsterdam (TRC 2022, SOSU Europe, RecBuzz), Berlin (Tech Rec 2022), and London (Recruitment Leaders Conference, HR Vision). Pricing varies from hundreds to thousands of euros depending on the specific conference and the chosen package. Some events may be overpriced 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 an option to attend online. For example, TRC 2022 (Amsterdam), Indeed FutureWorks (NY), 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 interesting for recruiters, such as Staffing World 2022, Tech Serve Executive Summit, OHRC 2022, and others. So, if you want to dive into these fields, you have a great choice of events, from in-person to hybrid and virtual.
We’ll continue keeping eye on the most insightful recruiting conferences and update this list as soon as we find something new. Add this post to your bookmarks if you don’t want to miss interesting events!
