HRO Today Events: In-Person, Virtual or Hybrid, We Bring Together and Celebrate HR Professionals


For years, HRO Today Forum events have brought together leading thinkers and practitioners from around the globe to share best practices and build relationships that improve the services of HR.

Across North America, Europe and Asia, these much anticipated events assemble and connect C-level HR leadership for learning, strategic thinking, networking and fun; featuring the CHRO of the Year Awards, the TA Leader of the Year Awards, and the Most Admired Employer Brand Awards.

In 2021, we plan on hosting each of these as hybrid events, including live conference sessions, award presentations, and events. As mentioned, all plans for live events are contingent on health concerns and local government restrictions, and we will observe all necessary protocols and guidelines to keep all in attendance safe.


HRO Today is proud to present the 2021 Educational Conference Series, a variety of learning and networking events to help executives build and benchmark their talent management initiatives. Now, your upper leadership can attend the HRO Today Forum for strategic learning, and your entire team can attend more targeted events focused on a single topic or talent management initiative.

Our 2021 event schedule is now available! With appropriate prudence given to ongoing global health concerns, we’ll begin the year with exclusively virtual events.

With promising reports published recently of an effective coronavirus vaccine possibly coming early in the year, we are hopeful that health conditions and guidelines will allow for safely planned in-person gatherings in both the U.S. and Europe by Fall of 2021. All HRO Today in-person events will be planned and executed with the utmost attention to health and safety of everyone in attendance.


It’s not just another virtual event! In addition to top-tier educational content, this year’s conference will include additional networking breaks that are long enough to allow for the in-depth conversations that lead to meaningful contacts.
