Everything Reward and Benefits

12 - 13 October 2021
ExCeL London

Important announcement

For many of us, 2020 has been a rollercoaster year. Although we all hope that the worst is behind us, challenges remain. We have therefore made the difficult decision to postpone Employee Benefits Live, which was due to take place 6 – 7 October. Employee Benefits Live will now take place Tuesday 12 October to Wednesday 13 October 2021 at ExCeL London.

This decision was not taken lightly and follows feedback from customer groups including exhibitors, visitors and speakers as well as the continued concerns around local lockdowns.

Since mid-March, our focus has been on ensuring we could run an event that would be the safest possible environment for everyone involved. Although we remain confident in our ability to do this, we know that our customers expect an event which also meets the standards built by the Employee Benefits brand over the past 22 years. 

Although the current climate is concerning for everyone as workplaces adapt to the ‘new normal’, HR, reward and benefit professionals are going to need strategies and solutions more than ever to keep their employees feeling motivated, engaged and reassured. We are postponing Employee Benefits Live but we are still providing the industry with the updates, insights and solutions it needs. Keep an eye out as we will be launching a new series of virtual events in the upcoming weeks so you can still get your content fix.

Welcome to Employee Benefits Live 2021

On 12 - 13 October 2021 more than 2,000 HR, reward and benefits professionals will fill the halls at ExCeL London for the 22nd edition of Europe’s largest reward and benefits event; Employee Benefits Live.
