Learning Technologies, Europe's most important conference and exhibition for learning and development professionals, took place on 13 and 14 February in London. The event was held, for the first time, at its new home ExCeL London and attracted record visitor numbers, with over 8,500 attending the two-day event.
The Learning Technologies Conference, attended by 760 learning and development professionals, debated all of the important topics in organisational learning and the technology to support learning in the workplace.
The 5-track conference ran over thirty sessions hosted by learning and technology experts. Themes covered included artificial intelligence, personalisation, microlearning and learning measurement and held keynote presentations from executive advisor, analyst and best-selling author, Marcia Conner and professor of economics and observer of the impact of technology and artificial intelligence on work and society, Daniel Susskind.
The Learning Technologies Exhibition, a showcase of over 230 of the learning industry’s leading providers, was visited by over 8,500 people and ran over 220 seminars in twelve open theatres.
Rob Clarke, Managing Editor, Learning News, said: “We interviewed many of the exhibitors and conference speakers and were blown away by the event’s energy, passion, excitement and professionalism. It was great to be reporting on Learning Technologies 2019 at its new home and to see the learning industry’s work on show.”
Event organiser, Mark Penton, said: “The move to ExCeL has been a tremendous success and has helped us to create a truly world-class event. I’d like to thank all those who took part - the event’s speakers and exhibitors, those involved in the organisation and smooth running of the event and all those who attended over the two days. I hope everyone enjoyed Learning Technologies 2019.”
The event will return for its 21st year on 12 - 13 February 2020.
