Make the Most of Your Staffing World Experience—Add a Preconvention Program

Are you ready for Staffing World®, the industry’s biggest event? The ASA annual convention and expo, Oct. 3–5 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC, will give you the chance to choose among more than 30 learning sessions in 12 major content categories—including business development, talent management, technology, and more.

Among the new learning opportunities this year are preconvention programs that will take place before the convention begins:

  • THRIVE Live (presented by the ASA women in leadership interest group), featuring keynote speaker Henna Pryor of the Pryority Group—a renowned author and workplace performance expert
  • Staffing Firm Owners Masterclass, created to meet the operational and growth-focused needs of staffing firm owners in an increasingly dynamic industry—where relationships are often as important as experience
  • Recruiting Masterclass, designed specifically for recruiters working in today’s multichannel, talent-driven, technology-enabled staffing landscape

These preconvention programs take place Monday, Oct. 2, and Tuesday, Oct. 3; separate registration is required. Visit to learn more and register.
