TAtechEurope and UNLEASH will be conducting a joint mega-conference in London on March 24-26. Unlike other recruitment advertising & technology events, it offers industry execs a powerful 2-fer: meet with current and potential customers at UNLEASH and network with other industry execs and business partners at TAtechEurope.
The afternoon of Wednesday, March 25 will feature a joint Talent Acquisition Program covering many of the most important developments, issues and trends in recruitment advertising & technology. Here’s a look at the agenda:

A panel of recruitment tech company and HR / Talent Acquisition execs explore how to best invest wisely online and build great candidate journeys at the same time.

Knowing which tools will interoperate with those already in an employer’s TA tech stack and how best to ensure that integration is effective is a huge challenge.
