It feels like only yesterday we were sharing our list of top fall conferences you should have on your calendar. Yet here we are, closing in on 2020 -- yes, it’s time to start blocking out your calendar for early 2020 conferences. 

If you’re not sure where to start, or are simply looking for some inspiration, here’s our current list of top conferences for staffing professionals early in the New Year:

1. Social Recruiting Strategies Conference

January 28 - 30, San Francisco

Social recruiting has changed so much from the early days of Facebook and LinkedIn. As major social platforms -- and how we use them -- continue to evolve, this event shares real-world case studies and actionable advice to help you take advantage. The Social Recruiting Strategies Conference is part of Talent Acquisition Week, so you can block out an entire week in San Fran if you want to pick up even more helpful insights. 

2. Recruitment Agency Expo

February 4 - 5, London, UK

Join us across the pond for two days in beautiful, jaw-dropping London this February. The Sense team is thrilled to attend this event, which aims to answer the biggest questions facing staffing and recruiting firms in the New Year. With trends emerging and evolving by the minute, staying on top of things and deftly navigating them can be challenging. By bringing together industry thought leaders, Recruitment Agency Expo will arm you with insights and advice to come out on top in 2020.

3. Hiring Success

February 11 - 12, San Francisco

With sessions on pressing topics like diversity, Instagram recruiting, candidate loyalty and much, much more, Hiring Success brings together 1,200+ recruiting leaders to tackle the issues you’re facing now, while looking ahead to the future. 

4. SIA Executive Forum

March 9 - 12, Miami Beach

By March, most of us are tired of dealing with winter. Why not head down to Miami Beach AND hobnob with your staffing peers? Sounds good to us! With thought-provoking speakers and in-depth breakout sessions, this is the premiere spring event for staffing industry executives. 

5. SourceCon Spring

March 23 - 25, Seattle

This spring, SourceCon really wants to go beyond sourcing and dig deep into attracting and engaging candidates, improving your response rates and tackling diversity, among other hot topics. Sessions and topics focus on results and people -- the two most important things for any staffing firm! 

6. ERE Recruiting Conference

April 15 - 17, San Diego

If you opted for Staffing World instead of ERE last fall, now’s the time to see what ERE’s got up its sleeve. With a focus on real-world examples and advice you can apply yourself, ERE ensures attendees can apply what they’ve learned by attending. Plus, it’s in beautiful San Diego! 

7. StaffingTec 2020

May 5 - 7, Austin, Texas

The only staffing industry conference that is exclusively focused on staffing technology and innovation, StaffingTec will be held in Austin, Texas this spring. We’ll be in Austin a lot this year! This is one not to miss for all thing tech!

8. SourceCon Europe

May 14 - 15, Lisbon, Portugal

Recruiting challenges are shared across the globe, yet the approaches, successes and insights offered by our peers in Europe can help us uniquely tackle challenges here in the U.S. Check out SourceCon Europe to tap into the latest strategies working around the world. 

9. Bullhorn Engage

June 17 - 19, 2020

If you enjoyed Austin for ExecForum in February, you’ll LOVE coming back for Bullhorn Engage in June! Our friends at Bullhorn hold one of the largest staffing and recruiting events in North America, with ample opportunity for networking and learning opportunities from some of the industry’s best minds.
