The 2020 World Employment Conference originally planned to take place from September 29 to October 1 in Madrid, Spain has been postponed to September 2021. In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the World Employment Confederation and ASEMPLEO’s main concern is health and safety of people.
The World Employment Conference is the annual event on the recruitment and employment industry, gathering senior executives of national staffing federations and business leaders of workforce solutions firms. The 2020 edition was to be organised by the World Employment Confederation in partnership with our Spanish National Federation Member, ASEMPLEO.
Looking at the situation created by the Covid-19 pandemic and bearing in mind that our organisations’ main concern in this crisis has always been the health and safety of people, we have decided to reschedule the conference to 7-8 September 2021. The World Employment Conference 2021 will still be held in Madrid, Spain, with the Novotel Madrid Center as our venue.
During the conference, participants will discuss the latest trends and innovations in the recruitment and employment industry. A combination of plenary sessions, break-outs and social activities ensures that both networking and effective learning and knowledge sharing are at the core of this conference. The one and a half days of World Employment Conference will be preceded by one and a half days of meetings reserved to WEC members.
The World Employment Confederation and ASEMPLEO remain committed to welcome the global recruitment and staffing community in Madrid and to offer the best networking and learning experience. We now have some extra time to build an even better programme that will help all participants to steer labour markets in the new normal. We look forward to seeing you in Madrid in 2021!
