Due to the pandemic, we have postponed the live event, originally scheduled for late January 2021. Instead, beginning in February, we will host a series of 6 virtual interactive sessions focusing on the future of human capital management, which will feature pre-selected award-winning members from this year’s Excellence Awards. 2020 award winners will also be featured in a blog showcase over the next several weeks and will be honored during the award ceremony at the live HCM Excellence Conference when it returns in February 2022.  We look forward to seeing you in person at HCM Excellence Conference 2022!


Business casual is appropriate during the day and the Welcome Reception.


The Excellence Awards and Gala dress code is black tie optional.

Official Hashtag

The official hashtag for the conference is #Excellence20. Please tag us @brandonhallgrp to engage in discussions leading up to the event and also to have your tweets and photos displayed on our social feeds on-site.

Mobile App

We will send all registrants an invitation to our mobile app a few weeks before the event. You can also visit your App Store and search AttendeeHub to download the app. Once the AttendeeHub app is downloaded, you may search for "HCM" in the search bar. Upon login, you will be sent a verification code. Use this verification code to login across all of your devices. Please note that if you are not registered for the event, you will not be able to access the app. The mobile app is the best way to find sessions and speakers you want to hear from, as well as sponsors and attendees that you’re interested in meeting.


Search through the session list to find breakout sessions you want to attend. Then set up bookmarks, add to your event calendar, or set up app reminders to get to a session early.


Historically, the weather around this particular time of year is high 78 / low 61.
