Attend in person and you’ll be able to network face-to-face with peers and industry experts; visit the expo hall to discover new solutions; and experience the beauty of the Mile-High City. Choose the virtual registration package and you’ll be able to view the livestream of all the keynotes, breakout sessions, Tech Talks, Speed Talks, and Game Changers in the Knowledge Hub; participate in interactive online sessions with live chats and Q&As; and experience the comfort of professional development in your own home or office.

Staffing World will take place Sept. 28–30 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Denver. Whether you attend in person or virtually, it’s your chance to connect with the staffing community and get strategies to help your business come back better than ever after a year of disruption.
