Staffing World Tech Park Launches in Chicago This October


The American Staffing Association will introduce the Staffing World® Tech Park during Staffing World 2017, the staffing industry’s largest convention and expo, Oct. 24‒26 in Chicago. The Tech Park will be a first-of-its-kind hub of technology-related solutions specific to the staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry.

Staffing World Tech Park was created in response to growing ASA member interest in the range of innovative technology solutions available to staffing companies. This new platform will give technology companies, suppliers with technology-related products and services, and staffing professionals the unique opportunity to share their technology expertise and company products and services with convention attendees. Staffing World Tech Park presentations will be 10 minutes long, and take place in the expo hall in a fun, park-like setting.

“This will be an energetic, fast-paced, content-rich showcase of ideas, products, and services to help staffing professionals identify, develop, and implement new and emerging technologies to enhance operational excellence and improve efficiency,” says ASA Chief Operating Officer Steve Berchem, CSP. “Staffing professionals and industry suppliers are invited and encouraged to share their expertise in brief, upbeat presentations. Topics could range from screening candidates with artificial intelligence, to cybersecurity risk management, to how to evaluate applicant tracking systems.”

Individuals interested in presenting at the Staffing World Tech Park must submit a 60-second (or less) video explaining who they are and their technology-related presentation idea. Speakers will be selected based on the presenter’s clarity and how well the video introduces the individual to the Staffing World audience, online and at the Tech Park. Video production quality is not a judging criterion—a video recorded on a smartphone is acceptable. Video proposals are due Sept. 5.
