Dear Business Industry Partner,

The 2019 Kansas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (KS SHRM) State Conference is scheduled for September 11-13, 2019 in Overland Park, Kan. Join us for this year’s conference theme as we "Travel Back to the HR Future" in celebration of our 30th annual event!

The Conference is being hosted at the Overland Park Convention Center and our time travelers will enjoy an amazing line up of keynote speakers from the HR industry - past, present and future. In 2017, the KSSHRM State Conference in Overland Park drew more than 550 attendees from all areas of the state, and we’re excited to surpass that number is 2019.

The Marketplace is truly the hub of the State Conference and we've implemented a few new initiatives this year to support our Partners.
  • We're introducing Lead Generation access for our partners to use for immediate access of visiting attendees' information (available to Sapphire sponsors and Exhibitors for a fee). Attendees' information will be coded to their name tag and can be accessed with a quick photo through your lead generation app. From there, you may make notes regarding the contact and share it with your colleagues for follow-up.
  • For those business partners that do not choose to have a booth presence, we have multiple opportunities available to choose from under the various levels.
  • All Business Partners are invited to join our HR professionals on Thursday, September 12th following the closing of the Exhibit Hall. More information to follow as we finalize the details.
  • We took care to ensure ample time for our attendees to visit the Marketplace Exhibit Hall and encourage you to review the schedule. Activities with attendees begin at 4:30 pm on Wednesday, September 11th and carry through all day on Thursday, September 12th.

The Partner kits on the KSSHRM website also will continue to be updated with information (including the monthly Business Partner newsletters).
