Receive awards and conference updates
It gives us great pleasure to announce our third annual North American Employee Engagement Conference & Awards. We return to the great city of Chicago with some of our 2016 event winners ready to present updated award-winning case studies along with a host of experts, sessions & thought-provoking ideas. You will be inspired in unique ways personal to you. Past attendees have commented that the conference challenged them to think differently, gave them proof to convince a CEO to invest more, convinced them to stop a program that just wasn’t working, and just allowed them to bounce ideas off like-minded professionals.
We also return to one of the best new venues in Chicago – Morgan MFG – in the West Loop next to Google, Glassdoor, McDonald’s and other iconic businesses.
This is the only event that is able to combine award-winning programs & experts for your benefit before announcing the next generation of excellence at the 2017 North American Employee Engagement Awards later in the day.
You will learn from best-in-class engagement programs across a wide range of companies and sectors and learn what pitfalls to avoid along the way. Speak with our esteemed judges, respected industry experts for inspiration and, most importantly, network with hundreds of your fellow professionals.
With more than 15 speakers, whether you are responsible for creating an entire engagement program or are a manager looking to motivate your team, this event gives practical and real-life advice that can be implemented to help employees feel involved and enthusiastic about their work, personal performance and the performance of your business. It might even inspire you to win one of our awards in the future.
Our ticket price offers sensational value compared to other conferences around the world.
The Conference ticket also gives you access to the Employee Engagement Awards Cocktail Hour, Ceremony & Party. Celebrate with the newly announced 2017 North American winners. It will be a party not to be missed, enjoying the spectacular Chicago skyline backdrop as the sun goes down, sensational catering and an open bar.

The Conference & Awards will be hosted at the Morgan MFG Innovation Lab. We can’t think of a better place to inspire and educate around the subject of Employee Engagement during the day and then to celebrate the award winners and party long into the evening on a summer’s evening in Chicago. Although we do hope for better weather than last year.
