The 2018 California HR Conference Marketplace Expo is a buzzing space full of creative networking, HR solutions, learning opportunities, and plenty of goodies! This year, our Expo offers an unprecedented amount of resources, prizes, and FUN for HR professionals in California. It’s a paradise for anyone who want to make the most out of their conference experience. How would you like to explore all this for free? 

Some of our exhibitors have free Expo (Marketplace-only) passes to give away. Seriously. There’s no hook here.

The promo codes also take $25 off the price of our Expo+ pass. 

Here’s how it breaks down:

Expo-Only Monday or Tuesday registrations are free. The 2 Day (Monday & Tuesday) Expo-Only registration goes from $50 to $25.
