Top 5 reasons to attend the 2018 ATD ICE San Diego

Considered as “the largest event for talent development professionals worldwide,” ATD’s event brings together more than 10,000 professionals from around the world for four days of intensive and exciting learning opportunities.While industry thought leaders share and showcase best practices and latests trends, attendees will have the opportunity to significantly expand their network of peers, as well as gain fresh new ideas on how to apply recent developments in their current roles.On top of that, here’s a list of the top 5 reasons to attend 2018 ATD ICE:

#1 Get to meet the top-notch players in the Learning and Development industry:

The best and most influential exponents of the L&D field will be there, and it’s a remarkable opportunity to connect and share experiences. Engage with people you don't necessarily know as discussions you may have at the booths can be as productive and meaningful as the demos themselves.

#2 Keep up with the latest learning solutions:

With more than 422 companies confirmed to attend, the ATD conference offers a great opportunity to experience firsthand the latest trends and products, so instead of merely relying on cold emails and traditional webinars, get your hands dirty and get ahold of these state-of-the-art solutions.

#3 Embrace an international perspective:

Mobile technology adoption grows faster abroad than in the United States, and 30% of those 10,000 participants usually come from outside the country. ATD provides a unique chance to access a broader angle on L&D and get familiar with those trends and initiatives that are leading the way in other latitudes.

#4 CenarioVR™:

We’ve all heard that VR training experiences have a proven higher retention rate, with retention gains reaching 75% in comparison to standard video, eLearning, or textbook training. Join Trivantis as we cover the creation, editing, publishing, and tracking of VR training using 360 degree video. We will highlight the potential learning applications for using CenarioVR, and how it can be integrated into your current learning environment.

#5 Obama:

Do we need to say more? ATD has always offered outstanding and thought-provoking keynote speakers. This year they take it to the next level as President Barack Obama takes the stage to share his vision and thoughts on Learning and Development.
