Theme: HR Delivering Innovation and Excellence – The IPM Convention and Exhibition is Africa’s Premier Human Resources and Business Leadership Event that is hosted annually since 1956. It is a 3-day cutting edge and content rich programme that delivers the latest thinking and solutions in management and development of people.
Since the first Convention in 1956, this event has consistently attracted an average of 500 delegates per year, with some year’s figures going as high as 1100 delegates. In 2014 delegate numbers sat at 900, this is a sign that our Convention is offering value to the industry.
The IPM Annual Convention and Exhibition is the one event on every Human Resources Professional, Business Leaders, Suppliers and Key influencers calendar. This is where public and private sector People Managers come together to explore topical issues and seek solutions to business challenges.
The event offers unrivalled networking opportunities as delegates, exhibitors, speakers and sponsors engage during both formal and social programme in the beautiful surroundings of Sun City in the North West Province.
Delegates have the opportunity to learn from experts, share knowledge and to network with like-minded peers in the industry. The Convention provides concrete takeaways for application back in the workplace, such as frameworks, models, processes and case studies from leading organisations. The Convention and its sessions should clarify that HR must be able to lead the business through its knowledge and expertise, with clear confirmation of the value proposition of HR, as evaluated by HR.
The Convention should help practitioners to assess the value they deliver and prompt their focus on striving to improve the way they lead business to success.
The new Social Programme
We have included a range of new social activities – such as an excursion to the wonderful Maze of the Lost City and a guided 5km fun walk through the spectacular Gardens of the Lost City. This provides you with a chance to explore some of the beautiful attractions at Sun City whilst meeting other delegates and enriching your diversity of network. These activities supplement the popular Golf Day on the Lost City Golf Course, the cocktail events and the prestigious Gala Dinner where the Excellence Awards are presented.
It is also the setting for the IPM Annual Gala Dinner Excellence Awards which recognise excellent practice in HR.
The Convention offers a range of sponsorship opportunities for organisations.
The IPM Annual exhibition showcases products and services targeted at the HR market. Members benefit from a discounted rate for stand space at the exhibition.
