The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has changed the dates for next year’s Annual Conference and Exhibition in Harrogate.
The conference and exhibition opening days are changing from the traditional Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The 2006 event will take place on 24-26 October.
The move will enable the CIPD to continue to develop the conference and exhibition, especially on the last day which has traditionally finished at 3pm.
The new dates will also allow exhibitors, visitors and delegates to avoid travelling back from Harrogate on a Friday, said Fiona Fennell, head of conferences and exhibitions, at the CIPD.
“Thousands of people management professionals and HR suppliers attend the event each year and we are confident that this move will enable them to make the most of their time at the conference and exhibition,” she said.
“It will also enable them to deal with any issues back in the office at the end of the week.
