Sponsorship and Exhibitor Opportunities - Registration Opens Soon

The Annual RPI Experience Conference is an intimate and exciting way to make long-lasting relationships that exponentially expand your business, with approximately 150 recognition professionals attending each year.

RPI members range from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses. We have members from Southwest Airlines, MIT, Accenture, Kaiser Permanente, McKinsey & Company, RBC Royal Bank and so many more world-class organizations. Our members rely on the RPI conference to network with their peers, access our 7 Best Practices model, raise their professionalism by applying for our Best Practice Awards as well as our world-class Certified Recognition Professionals (CRP) certification program.

Recognition drives employee engagement and our members are leaders driving results using RPI resources.

With members hailing from the U.S., Canada, and abroad, the recognition professionals who attend this meeting include directors of human services, employee relations, benefits, chief HROs, meeting planners, and more. RPI attendees are loyal; over half have been to at least four RPI conferences and continue to come back!
