Nowadays it seems as if there is an HR event nearly every week. As¬†Indian poet¬†Avijeet¬†Das once¬†said,¬†‚ÄúWe don’t meet anyone by chance,” and¬†2018 is full of opportunities¬†for HR professionals¬†to meet new people,¬†create¬†new bonds, and learn the trends and best practices you need to be successful.¬†¬†

To help you sort through the noise we’ve put together a list of the top HR events to attend in Europe this year.¬†¬†

Unleash (Formerly HR Tech World) 

Unleash will organize two events in Europe in 2018: London on March 20 & 21, and Amsterdam on October 23 & 24. This is probably the largest global community on the future of work (but beware, We the Talent is coming), has amazing keynote speakers like Arianna Huffington and Richard Brandson, and is the perfect event for looking at how technology and best practices can help everyone reach their full potential.  

Sourcing Summit  

Our favorite¬†recruitment and sourcing event¬†is featuring a small European tour this¬†year¬†(watch out Bruce Springsteen): Munich on April 25 & 26, London on June 20 & 21 and Amsterdam on October¬†10¬†‚Äst12.¬†The speakers give presentations that is equally interesting and practical, and the hackathons show you ways to find candidates that are truly unique. A must attend event for anyone with a passion for recruiting.¬†¬†   

Club Talentsoft 

After a successful 2017 edition in Paris¬†with 1000+ HR¬†pros, Club¬†Talentsoft¬†is taking the show to Amsterdam in 2018!
