Join the Festival at Grand Hall

The stunning Victorian architecture, magnificent galleries, and recognisable vaulted roof of the Grand Hall at Olympia London is the perfect venue to host the inaugural CIPD Festival of Work.

The vast Grand Hall will be home to our Festival. An event in itself, the Festival provides all our visitors with a vibrant, entertaining and engaging space to meet suppliers, network with peers, engage in free CPD at a range of free learning events, recharge and replenish with interesting world cuisine, or to find a quiet spot to reflect. 

What’s on the agenda?

With 160+ inspirational speakers and 3 dedicated conferences, the Festival of Work promises to tackle the big issues that will shape the future of all our working lives.

As well as conference content and free learning sessions, there is also a host of social events, entertainment and interactive elements to get involved with across the two days.

The full event agenda will be released in Spring 2019. Until then, follow us on social media and let your friends and colleagues know that you’ll see them there.
