2019 RPI Experiene Conference logo

Conference Overview

Delta Air Museum

The Recognition Professionals International Annual Experience Conference is the premier conference for professionals leading or starting an employee recognition strategy to drive employee engagement in their organizations. Our entire program is focused on research, case studies, practical tools and the RPI 7 Best Practices® that companies like Southwest Airlines, MIT and Microsoft® have been using to drive engagement and organizational performance for years. Our attendees come from all sectors – health care, higher education, financial/insurance, technology, transportation, travel and nonprofits.

It’s all about ROI. You will be challenged, engaged, inspired and equipped to return to your organization to implement a sustainable, research-based recognition strategy that the C-Suite will buy into! Bring your team for awesome team-building too! Meet, network, and get insights from thought leaders and experienced practitioners and business partners.

Be ready for many “Ah ha” moments in our sessions, networking and one-on-one conversations!
