CIPD announces changes to flagship events

The two largest events organised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) are both set to undergo changes in 2007.

The CIPD's Annual Conference and Exhibition will move from its traditional October slot to a new September slot from 2007. The new dates for the Annual Conference and Exhibition in Harrogate are 18-20 September 2007.

In addition, HRD 2007, the CIPD's event for learning and development professionals, is moving to a new home at ExCeL London.

Fiona Fennell, CIPD head of conferences and exhibitions, said: "Our conferences and exhibitions are some of the most popular events in the world for people management and development professionals, but we're always looking for ways to make them better.

"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.

"From 2007 HRD will benefit from ExCeL's state of the art facilities, allowing us to make the conference and exhibition work together better for the thousands of learning and development professionals who join us each year."

In 2008 the CIPD will also be taking its turn to host the World Federation of People Management Association's World Congress. This event will take place alongside HRD 2008.
