I’ve got the rundown on the top 10 reasons why you won’t want to miss this year’s PlanSource Eclipse conference!

1.) Amazing Location

You’ll get plenty of vitamin SEA at this year’s Eclipse conference! Our destination of choice, Half Moon Bay, California, is situated just a short drive south of the bustling city of San Francisco. August is a beautiful month to visit the West coast, with daytime temps averaging a balmy 70 degrees. The event will take place at The Ritz-Carlton, a stunning oceanfront retreat. There is no doubt that you will enjoy a truly lavish experience during your conference stay! Learn more about this year’s Eclipse venue and book your stay at a discounted event rate.

2.) Rise & Shine Activities

We understand the importance of work/life balance, and we wanted to incorporate that balance into our event. Each morning, you will have the option to attend a free “rise and shine” activity to jump-start your day and enjoy a casual, stress-free networking event with other attendees. We’re still confirming activities for 2018 – stay tuned for the official schedule. In the past, activities have included yoga, hiking, and more!  

3.) Meaningful Connections

Networking is much more than just small talk with strangers. Relationships are crucial in the business world and making meaningful connections at professional events is priceless. Eclipse is proud to offer an intimate atmosphere with only a few hundred attendees. This makes it easy to meet and mingle with like-minded HR professionals in a relaxed and non-intimidating setting. Our mid-conference happy hour and conference bash are often touted as the highlight of the event and are the perfect opportunity to bump elbows with fellow human resources enthusiasts and make connections that actually matter.

4.) Top-Notch Speakers

Not to brag or anything, but we have a pretty impressive list of speakers for 2018. Rob O’Neill, a former Navy SEAL that has served in more than 400 combat missions around the world, is this year’s featured guest keynote. Rob will share his unique perspective on strategic planning and how to incorporate the right ingredients for success: the right people, decision making under pressure, and a commitment to never quit. We also have exciting guest speakers from other well-known companies, including Ultimate Software, Compassion International, Lockton Companies, and many more. Be sure to check out our full speaker lineup!

5.) Affordable Price

We understand that budgets are a top consideration when planning for personal development. That’s why we strive to provide a high-quality event at an affordable price. Conferences can be expensive – thousands of dollars just to attend in some cases! Eclipse, however, starts at just $299 and tops out at $499, depending on how early you buy your ticket. Your conference ticket also includes rise & shine activities, happy hour, breakfast and lunch, the welcome reception, and our famous Eclipse Bash. The early bird gets the worm, so the earlier you snag your ticket, the more you’ll save!

6.) Killer Content & Course Credit

Despite our unbelievably low price, Eclipse Conference is jam-packed with valuable content. Our influential speakers will cover topics ranging from benefits strategy, regulations and compliance, employee engagement, health care consumerism, HCM technology trends, and much more. Anyone and everyone in the HR field is sure to find valuable content that will provide key insights to make your job easier and to keep you up to date on the latest and greatest industry trends. And, several of our sessions are approved for SHRM & HRCI credits. Don’t forget to check out our full conference agenda.

7.) Rave Reviews

We know that Eclipse is the best HR industry conference – but don’t just take our word for it!
