Join the revolution in the world of work – why attending is a great investment

We’ve drafted a letter for you to personalise and hand to your boss making the case for you to join us at the CIPD Festival of Work. Simply choose between a one or two day conference ticket and select the sessions that you want to attend.

The Festival of Work brings together two unmissable CIPD shows, Learning & Development and HR Recruitment & Softwareand adds in a brand-new show, The Future of Work. The result is a pivotal event that will power your working future.

Whether you’re a C-suite leader or a people professional, the Festival tackles your challenges head-on and equips you for the work revolution. It’s overflowing with inspiration, innovation, and practical solutions to your challenges right now.

So why have the L&D Show and the HR Software Show become part of the Festival of Work? Because looking at L&D or HR tech in isolation doesn’t prepare you for the work revolution. You need to equip your people with the blend of learning, skills and technology needed to succeed in a tech-transformed future. And that’s why this ground-breaking Festival explores L&D, HR Tech and The Future of Work, all under one roof.
