The Global Talent Ecosystem

Who should attend?

Join an exclusive group of 50 Extended Workforce Leaders including Procurement, Talent Acquisition Leaders and Highly Vetted Sponsors as you collaborate on best practices in a safe and luxurious indoor/outdoor venue. VISION WEST 2021 offers real-time market intelligence & insights for Outsourced and Internal Extended Workforce Programs. The following Enterprise Leaders may join:

Indirect Procurement

Talent Acquisition

Program Operations

How is VISION WEST 2021 different from a virtual event?

While virtual events are easy and efficient, assembling in a safe and secure environment creates the necessary space to deepen relationships and expand thinking… creating trust and uncovering new ways of working.  (Being at The Ritz-Carlton, overlooking the Pacific Ocean doesn’t hurt, either.)

In-person and ad-hoc

The best conversations are unplanned and spontaneous. "Bump into" your next peer mentor and solution innovator.

Interactive Sessions

Lectures be gone! Dive deep during roundtables with Procurement and TA peers plus vetted, innovative provider sponsors.

Cocktails & Dinner

Experience a networking event like no other overlooking the Pacific Ocean at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton.

FREE Tickets Available

Sponsors have free promo codes. Reach out and touch someone (or ask us) for your favorite sponsors' FREE promo code.

Discounted Rooms

Rooms at The Ritz-Carlton are typically $1,500 per night. Enjoy steep room block discounts at $199/night (while supplies last for Enterprise ONLY)

LinkedIn Live

Keynotes will be LIVE broadcasted on LinkedIn to reach thousands of Talent Leaders around the world.
