We’ve created The HRExaminer Field Guide for HRTech. Our goal is to provide you with a quick way to get your bearings and maximize the benefit you get from the upcoming conference in Chicago. The conference has 400 vendors and 65 sessions – there is simply no way to see it all.

To make it easier to find the best conference track we have built 40 separate agendas based on your role (practitioner, buyer, vendor, or investor) and your main job function (such as Core HR, Benefits Administration, or Payroll). Visit the session guides section to quickly navigate to our recommendations for you.

There’s also a sortable vendor directory. We’ve taken the latest information from the conference and added our independent categorizations and information.

Finally, there is a section that offers tips and strategies for a successful conference. Don’t miss the gems from Bill Kutik, Rayanne Thorn, Trish McFarlane, Heather Bussing, and Brian Sommer.
