[EVENT RECAP]: HR & Employee Benefits Summit Takes on Society Hill

Meeting 2.jpgPHILADELPHIA, PA – The HR & Employee Benefits Summit hosted nearly 630 business meetings in Philadelphia on March 14-15, 2016. For executives attending the summit, it was an opportunity to connect, learn about and discuss the latest technologies and services in the industry.

HR decision makers from companies including 4M Building Solutions, Dow Chemical, Johns Hopkins, Johnson & Johnson and Toll Brothers, Inc. met with leading solution providers offering a variety of services in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. “This event was like no other event I have ever been a part of,” exclaimed the Director of Human Resources from Martin Insurance Group, “You receive one-on-one time with vendors of your choice and get the time to learn about products you might not have realized were out there.”

Industry thought leaders also hosted seminars for executive attendees, including New York Times bestselling author and Fortune 500 consultant, Daniel Schawbel.  Mr. Schawbel hosted an intimate seminar to 30 of our attendees, the same seminar that he will later present to more than 3,500 people at SHRM in Washington DC. Topics included leadership, recruiting, talent management, management training, and leveraging technology in the human resources industry.

“Not only was this experience great for meeting vendors, but also for getting the chance to talk to other individuals in similar roles to me,” said the Head of Senior Recruitment from Suarez Corporation following numerous networking activities and meals. Delegate attendees connected with both vendors and peers during a gala dinner where lobster ravioli and cheesecake were both a huge hit! Later that night, attendees took to the blackjack tables for a chance to win a grand prize.

On day two, everyone was back to business for more meetings and seminars. Before heading back to their offices, attendees participated in a raffle prize drawing over lunch where National Vice President of Training from Toll Brothers, Cynthiann King, took home an online one-on-one assessment from Taking Flight Learning. Other winners included Rene Persin of Hartford Funds and Patrick Paul of Anderson Center for Autism who both took home Seiko watches. Vendors who participated in the draw prizes included DeVry University, Stewart Leadership and CareerArc.

Why Attend an Appointment-Based Event?

Facts About Our Events:
55% of attending Delegates do not attend
any of the major national trade shows. 
96% of attending Vendors say a Forum is a more 
effective way of meeting potential buyers.
95% of Vendors say attending a Forum saves their
company time sourcing and meeting new buyers. 
40% of Vendors attend 4-7 of our events.
62% of all Delegates say they will do business with
1-3 Vendors they met at our event. 

Our niche networking concept develops a pool of potential clients who are qualified and seeking new services. All attendees are senior-level executives with decision-making abilities and sourcing responsibilities. In a traditional setting, a meeting with these clients could take several months to confirm. That’s months of empty calling that may never result in a face-to-face introduction. At a Forum, you meet with up to 30 end users who have indicated they need your service – 62 percent of whom say they plan to do business with 1-3 Vendors they connected with at a Forum! 95 percent of past Vendors report attending an appointment-based event with us saves their company time sourcing and meeting new buyers (consider this cold calling, emailing, travel and maybe – a meeting with a decision maker).
We are able to boost your numbers by generating a pool of hot leads under one roof,
guaranteeing a return on investment!
