Innovation has been at the heart of what HR Tech World is all about since its inception in 2011. Our aim has been to disrupt the status quo in the workplace in order to allow employees to reach their potential and take their organizations to the next level. We are now taking our quest to improve the Future of Work for the better to the next level and pivoting into a new direction as UNLEASH!

UNLEASH your people has been our motto for the last 5 years and embodies everything about our show and the powerful community we have carefully nurtured. UNLEASH allows us to open the community to leadership teams in enterprises across the world who understand that products and industries are being entirely disrupted. All job functions are going to undergo radical transformation over the next 5-10 years.

Through partnership, we truly want to change the world of work and inspire leaders and organizations to change what for many is a current contract and approach to shared wealth creation that is broken. HR Tech is an important enabler to UNLEASH and our shows will continue to showcase the most innovative solutions in the space and strategies designed to empower your people.

During our flagship show in Amsterdam on 24 and 25 October, we unveiled our new brand after Arianna Huffington’s closing keynote on our Future of Work stage. Along with the rebrand, we’re happy to announce the creation of UNLEASH News, an updated content portal we’ll be curating along with the help of today’s leading Future of Work experts.

The HRN Blog has been incorporated into our news site and we’ll be taking on a more stimulating approach to what our audience has been asking for. We’re looking forward to telling the hard-hitting stories that are affecting your organization’s’ people and discussing how new disruptions in tech and the world as a whole are changing the workplace for the better.

Founder and CEO Marc Coleman will lead UNLEASH in its evolution to the most exhilarating and informative show and platform on the Future of Work.

“The UNLEASH community will look to become more open to leadership from across organizations, and to engage with the people that are making big differences in the world of work, creating communities that enable disruptive workplace innovation and learning. The opportunity that excites me the most is the bridge we have now built between Europe and US, and I believe that will be a catalyst as we transition our London, Amsterdam and Las Vegas shows to leverage UNLEASH to become the go-to portal for content on the Future of Work,” he said.


Insight, inspiration, vision and innovation are watchwords for the attendee experience and depth of content that puts UNLEASH ahead of the game. Our shows attract the most influential visionaries in the world of work, including Sir Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, Sir Ken Robinson, Rachel Botsman and Gary Vaynerchuk. More than 55% of our attendees are CEOs, EVPs, and SVPs of today’s most exciting and forward-thinking brands in the world.

UNLEASH (previously HR Tech World) is ranked as the largest Corporate Network focused on the interface between people, technology and the future workplace. This year our shows welcomed over 9,000 attendees from 120 countries at our shows in London, San Francisco and Amsterdam.
