A World of Learning – in one region. National HR event returns to Midlands for 23rd year


ExpoHundreds of Midlands-based managers responsible for learning & development (L&D) will be discovering the latest in workplace learning when a national business event returns to the NEC for its 23rd year, with many of the region’s L&D companies taking part. The World of Learning Conference & Exhibition takes place on 29 & 30 September and is the essential event for learning and development professionals. Combining top industry innovators, leading suppliers and the latest in interactive learning technology, this year’s World of Learning is set to examine, discuss and shape the future of business learning.

Offering a bespoke schedule of seminars, sessions and panel debates, the exhibition and conference will enable L&D specialists to develop their skills and access the latest information to equip them with the capabilities to succeed in the current and future business environment.

Many Midlands businesses are showcasing their L&D solutions to visitors at the exhibition including Wolverhampton-based ICS Genee World. A leading manufacturer and international distributor of touchscreen technology and AV equipment, clients range from City of Bradford MDC to Barnados. How to Moodle, based in Telford, work on e-learning software with organisations such as BT, EDF Energy and Topps Tiles.

Alongside the exhibition is a comprehensive conference with speakers from LinkedIn, Capital One International and Manchester Metropolitan University, Coca-Cola Enterprises and Santander. The highly respected conference provides valuable insight into the key issues facing L&D, from talent management, employee engagement, leadership development and coaching, to informal learning, collaborative learning, e-learning development and delivering ROI.

Andrew Gee, senior project manager, World of Learning comments:

“A series of really exciting and successful L&D businesses in the Midlands are set to showcase their offering to some of the UK’s top L&D professionals and buyers at the NEC this month. The World of Learning is one of the country’s top HR events and attracts visitors from across the UK. We do, however, return to our Birmingham base year after year and find it’s an ideal location in which to hold this major national event.”
