With 100 exhibitors across 1,200 square metres of floor space, HR Festival Asia’s now sold-out Expo is set to be the region’s biggest such exhibition in 2019.

Through both days of the event, HR and business leaders will have the opportunity to receive expert insights on selecting the right technology for their organisations, and better understanding the future technology landscape.

The exhibition also features a dedicated Startup Zone, where more than 20 of the hottest HR start-ups from around the world will showcase their technology and products to an audience hungry for the latest emerging products.

The participants are all in their first five years of business, and each offers a new perspective or unique technology-enabled solution on some age-old HR challenges.

There are payroll services, job boards, and organisational culture specialists, among a host of other solution providers ready to make their mark on the HR community.

Visit them all at the Startup Zone, just beside the HR Tech stream stage in the Expo Hall. Or see them vie for some big prizes, funding, and recognition in the inaugural HR Festival Asia PitchFest.

In Round One, entrants will have just five minutes to wow the judging panel, which consists of HR professionals, technology experts, and government and private funding agencies.

Selected start-ups will pass through into the final round on Day Two, where they will each have 10 minutes on the HR Tech stage to make their pitch.

The ever-popular Power Talks stage, right in the heart of the exhibition, also makes it return. This year, it will feature more than 20 skills experts delivering bite-sized, enthusiastic learning on a variety of topics.

The first-ever HR Festival Asia, brought to you by the combined experience of HR Technology Conference & Exposition (US) and HR Summit (Asia), will descend upon Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre on May 8 and 9. It is slated to be Asia-Pacific’s biggest HR and technology conference, boasting six dedicated conference streams and a packed Expo.
