The stage is now being set for the Asia-Pacific region’s biggest HR and technology conference and expo, set to have its inaugural showing in May next year.

With the joint reputational backing of both HR Technology Conference & Exposition (US) and HR Summit Asia, the team at HR Festival Asia has scoured the globe to bring the best of HR thought leadership and research-driven insights to Asia.

Industry analyst and founder of Bersin by Deloitte Josh Bersin will deliver the closing keynote to the Festival, drawing on data gathered from throughout Asia and the world to explain how the workforce is changing and the ways employers themselves will need to evolve.

HR Futurist Jason Averbook will also be on the plenary stage, sharing his own insights on the changing world of work. And HR Technology expert John Sumser will delve deep into the ways automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence are making life for HR easier.

They are just three of the more than 110 speakers who will be part of HR Festival Asia’s six separate stages over May 8 and 9 in 2019.
