About HR West

The HR West conference is where you go to find out What's Next. Convening annually for 34 years in the San Francisco Bay Area, the event takes place in the most innovative place on earth---home to the world’s leading-edge companies. Practicing HR here requires skills beyond the ordinary, and a level of sophistication not found in other parts of the world.. How will you meet the challenges of globalization as it scatters your workforce worldwide? Are you prepared to keep up with the latest hi-tech boom? React to ever-evolving definitions of work? And all the while, maintain a human touch? After all, isn’t that what our job is all about…people?

Discover techniques for staying relevant and increasing efficiencies, but doing it with a heart. You’ll meet others like you and have a chance to learn from the best. Because nowhere else on earth can you gather this kind of talent, this level of expertise…the best are at HR West! Join us March 5-7, 2018 at the Oakland Convention Center, Oakland CA.

Comprehensive Learning

With more than 80 concurrent sessions (all for recertification credit) and separate tracks for startups, HR & technology, small business, and advanced career levels. Plus evergreen topics like employment law, benefits and talent management, you’ll find everything you need to get over the hurdles you’re facing.

The "Un" Conference

HR West is not your typical conference. No big expo hall, rather a collaborative event that focuses on you – the participant. Large enough to attract world-class presenters, yet small enough to make meaningful connections. And no other conference offers the ultimate convenience of hotel, parking and conference – all under one roof!

High-Quality Service Partners

Meet face-to-face with more than 80 exhibitors offering high-quality HR solutions. The unique setup of HR West provides a low-pressure setting for seeking out the right partner for you. Rather than isolating exhibitors in a faraway expo hall, our exhibitors are located throughout the venue - making it easy to stop by for a casual conversation.

Unparalleled Networking

The problems you face are real. Shouldn’t your network be too? Sit with others in your industry at lunch or catch up with friends during the afternoon cookie breaks. And of course there’s the popular Monday Night Reception with live music, hearty hors d’oeuvres and complimentary drinks.
