The summit in New York is the first of three events in place for 2014.
Shane Doherty, the event manager quoted: “I was excited about the HR & Employee Benefits Summit in New York which met my expectations and much more. The event was a huge success with nothing but positive feedback from vendor and delegate alike. This concept was brand new to many of the attendees and to see a skeptic turn into a believer is truly rewarding. We are now focused on the Chicago HR & Employee Benefits Summit in June, which is over two days and includes many more networking opportunities. Our events will continue to create new and long term business relationships!”
