Make Your Travel Plans for Staffing World 2023—Hotels Are Filling Up

Staffing World®, the ASA annual convention and expo, will bring together the brightest minds in the staffing community—plus keynote speakers Mike Krzyzewski (known by fans as “Coach K”), the coach of Duke University men’s basketball team who led Team USA to three Olympic gold medals (the opening keynote presentation is sponsored by World Wide Specialty Programs); Paul Zikopoulos, the vice president of cognitive data systems for IBM who is a leading expert on artificial intelligence; and Dominique Dawes, U.S. Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast, business owner, health and wellness advocate, and sports ambassador. Whether you’re a recruiter, human resource professional, or business owner, you’ll find valuable insights, networking opportunities, and inspiration to accelerate your firm’s growth.

It all takes place just four weeks from today—Oct. 3–5 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC—but the deadline for securing special room rates at one of the official Staffing World hotels is this Friday, Sept. 8. There are still rooms available at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Charlotte Uptown and the Omni Charlotte Hotel. Go to to learn more, and then register to secure your spot at Staffing World.
