An exciting new event has begun this year which we think looked great!

2019 sees the marriage of two CIPD events (Learning and Development, and HR Software & Recruitment Show) into one awesome event called Festival of Work!
‘The greatest celebration of people in the world of work’!

Combining these two events has been a really positive step for CIPD:

  • Over 7000 people attended the show
  • 300 Plus exhibitors
  • And more than 160 speakers over two days.

There were also lots of dogs attending as part of the #petsatwork mission – to help companies become dog friendly! Our Benny and Ragzi would have fit right in!

For their opening year, the Festival of Work show included magic tricks, live music,
and a FLASH MOB DANCE right in the middle of the event!

So you can imagine, this helped to create a really fun and inspiring experience for all attending.
The show’s positive goals and focus are clear, and talks range from AI and Tech to wellbeing at work.

At Festival of Work, we installed a stunning Modular exhibition stand for Jigsaw Cloud.

Jigsaw Cloud is a global SAP Gold Partner. They help SMB’s deliver an exceptional employee experience through innovative cloud technology solutions.

Their colourful island stand is perfect for an event whose focus is on learning, engagement, and stimulation because it is packed with gorgeous modular features. These include archways, curves, rotating headers, and backlit features – really helping Jigsaw Cloud to catch attention at the show.


It was lovely to see that our client Acacia Learning were attending the show too.
They purchased their Prestige stand a good few years back and it is still looking incredible. They’ve been self-building their modular exhibition stand ever since, and doing a great job at it too!

CEO of CIPD Peter Cheese talks about the challenges businesses face in an age of disruption and innovation: “We need to shape a future which truly puts people and its core – getting the best our people alongside the best of technology.”

Suffice to say we’re excited for the future of Festival of Work and can’t wait for 2020!
