What Happens at a CUE Conference?

This conference will be an immersive and invaluable experience taking place over three days in Orlando, Florida. Each day will be made up of engaging presentations and panels from some of the brightest minds in human resources and employee relations.

Here's How Our Virtual/Streaming Conference Works

CUE is excited to offer you valuable and timely information on changes in the law, employee and labor relations updates, and best practices in this format for those who are not able to meet with us in person.

As a streaming attendee, you will experience the conference as if being in the room with the main stage presenters on both days of the conference. You will have the benefit of three (3) afternoon breakout sessions from concurrent sessions, as well as helpful details related to recorded sessions, speaker information, and full speaker presentations.  Your conference app will also allow you to meet and connect with new and old friends and interact with live audience and speakers alike.

Details on how to log on, join and engage in the conference will reach your email box during the week of September 6th.
