The two largest events organised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) are both set to undergo changes in 2007, it has been announced.
The CIPD’s Annual Conference and Exhibition will move to a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday pattern this October, but in 2007 the event will take place a month earlier. The event will continue to take place in Harrogate in Yorkshire.
Fiona Fennell, CIPD head of conferences and exhibitions, said: “The new dates for the Harrogate conference from 2007 onwards are designed to be more family friendly, moving us away from the frequent clash with the school half-term break.
“The new Tuesday to Thursday slot is also intended to make the event work better for visitors, by avoiding a Friday evening journey home.”
HRD 2007, the CIPD’s event for learning and development professionals, is moving to a new home at the ExCeL centre in Docklands, London.
