The L&D industry is galloping towards the future. Learning in the workplace has come a long way since the era of boring slides with bullet points and in a few years’ time we will be witnessing more technological developments than we could imagine now.

The LMS space is booming, immersive learning content is on its way to become the norm, deep learning is getting deeper, the use of video spreads within the training delivery. Everyone in the professional learning and development industry needs to be on top of all aspects that currently shape this industry. And the best way to do this is to meet and share ideas of what’s happening and what will happen.

That’s why anybody who’s somebody in the e-learning industry will be getting together in a huge venue to attend the largest event for talent development professionals worldwide.

  • What: The ATD International Conference and Exposition
  • When: May 21 – 24
  • Where: The Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

ATD 2017

According to their website, the Association for Talent Development (ATD) is a professional membership organization supporting those who develop the knowledge and skills of employees in organizations around the world. Their mission is to empower professionals to develop talent in the workplace so that we’ll all be part of a world that works better.

They’ve been doing this for over 70 years. Perhaps you’ll remember them from the time they were called The American Society for Training & Development (ASTD).

The Association for Talent Development hosts a variety of conferences and events several times a year and the ATD International Conference & Exposition may be the most important one. This year’s edition will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Georgia World Congress Center.

The 3.9 million square feet of the venue will be trotted by the more than 20,000 feet of the talent development professionals that will roam the floors in the four days of the event and another four of pre-conference seminars and education sessions.

There will be amazing opportunities for anyone attending to meet like-minded professionals and share ideas about learning technologies, human capital, training delivery and everything in between.
