Welcome to Your 2014 IAEWS Fall Congress Information Page

The IAEWS Fall Congress will be held at The Mirage, 3400 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas, NV USA 89109 on October 27-28, 2014.  The venue has been completely renovated and is now one of the most modern conference centers on The Strip.  The Congress immediately precedes and is collocated with the RecruitingTrends Conference & Expo.

As is its tradition, the IAEWS has designed the Fall Congress as an “unconference” event to provide employment site professionals with the maximum opportunity to network with one another.  In addition, there will be speakers you won’t hear anywhere else, insights you can’t acquire anywhere else, and peer interactions that are one-of-a-kind.

Here’s the agenda:
