Looking Ahead: Champion
for A Better World of Work

The Brave New World of Work


The 2023 ATD Asia Pacific Annual Conference and Exhibition will be held on October 24-26

Recent global events accelerated the adoption of technology and catapulted digitized learning strategies to the fore of business agendas globally. It simultaneously made 2023 a critical year for businesses to adapt, future-proof their workforce, and create strategic talent pipelines to combat the war for top talent.


2023 is seeing the world of work transform, our business models evolve and are facing questions on what the ‘new normal’ is likely to be. For most organizations, investing in a robust L&D and HR strategy is the answer to come out on top.


To address this need for transformation, the ATD 2023 Asia Pacific Conference is primed to examine HR’s role in implementing powerful change management and organizational resilience practices. This is a unique opportunity to benchmark with innovative talent & HR solutions, network with your peers, while simultaneously learning from global thought leaders.


In 2022, the conference gathered 1100 HR business leaders and 45 exhibitors and sponsors from the Asia Pacific region and internationally. Evolving in its 12th edition, the ATD 2023 Asia Pacific Conference is the annual staple event for HR and business professionals across the Asia Pacific region, with one unified goal: Looking Ahead: Champion for A Better World of Work.


Celebrating the 12th edition of the ATD 2023 Asia Pacific Conference and Exhibition, in 2023 we’ll be offering even more content, interaction and engagement platforms, to ensure that this is the only event you need in your calendar for professional development, world-renowned keynotes, content and inspiration you and your team need to succeed.
