The HR Summit and Expo is just around the corner. This year the show will host 48 free HR seminars for you to learn from, 47 leading HR service and solution providers to help you in your operation needs and over 1500 HR professionals for you to network with – all for free and all for you.

We understand you must be busy and your time is precious – so to help you make the most of it, we put together a list of 10 things you should do at the show.

1. Arrive early. The show opens its doors to visitors at 10am on each day. Pre-registered visitors have fast-tracked access to the show. Pre-register here for free – hurry, pre-registration closes Thursday!
2. Take the metro. This is a very busy time of the year at the exhibition centre. Although parking is free, it is limited. With the Dubai Trade Centre Metro Station a couple of minutes away, it’s highly recommended. Here’s a map to the venue.
3. Plan your seminars. We have over 48 seminars running across the 3 days and 3 rooms. They are on first come first seated basis. Check the schedule and plan your visit to avoid disappointment.
4. Make it your mission to meet at least 5 new peers this year. Grow your network by participating in our networking sessions on the day. Don’t be shy. Bring a lot of business cards.
5. Visit the exhibition stands. We have over 45 of the world’s most innovative names in the HR industry exhibiting. Go to their stands and find out about the latest research and innovation. (Here’s a secret: they will also be giving away some prizes)
6. Get social. Tweet about the show using our hashtags #HRSE13 and #HRSuperhero. Snap a photo of our Superhero stand and post to Instagram with #HRSuperhero.
7. Give back. Take some time to complete our surveys and feedback forms at the show. These help us, our partners and speakers to improve on your experience at future events. We go through each and every single form to ensure your opinion is heard.
8. Tell people to come. This the only HR show in the region where you get quality learning and networking at absolutely no cost to you. This is worth sharing. Tell your colleagues to go to to pre-register for free.
9. Stick around. We will have many prize draws and giveaways planned for each day. Make sure you stick around and participate in our networking activities to win.
10. Visit on all 3-days. Many different seminars are scheduled for each day and some other giveaways and prizes. Make sure to plan some time on each day to attend

On behalf of the entire team behind the show, we look forward to seeing you on the floor.
