It's a Wrap - Xref at Toronto's HRPA Recap

Posted on 14 Feb 2017 by Rick Seymour

Last week at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Xref was provided the opportunity to sponsor and exhibit at Canada’s largest HR Conference - the HRPA Conference and Trade Show. It was an amazing few days and ended with great success.

The Trade Show was attended by thousands of HR professionals from a variety of industries and companies across the country. The event featured world-class keynote speakers, informative sessions on hot topic HR issues, featured cutting edge HR technology and some truly amazing vendor exhibits.

Xref Co-Founder Lee Seymour joined the enthusiastic Canadian team for three days all the way from Australia. Lee had the pleasure of introducing some renowned speakers and HR leaders who held workshops and speaking sessions throughout the three days, which was a huge honour.

The event drew close to 4,500 HR professionals - all with an appetite for learning new trends and technologies in human resources, that they can bring back with them to their organizations. The Xref branded water bottles and the Xref Challenge Phone Booth made for some great introductions to our brand and the conversations that resulted were fantastic. There was a clear appetite for tech solutions that can help modernize and streamline HR processes.

The HRPA Trade Show was truly a world class experience for both attendees and exhibitors. We are looking forward to being part of the next one in 2018!
