2020 Annual CEB Conference

74th Annual CEB Conference

Please join us in Orlando, FL for the 2020 CEB Annual Conference to be held at the iconic Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World. The Conference Planning Committee has planned an exciting program and they look forward to welcoming you to this members-only event.

Here’s a quick look at what we have planned:

  • A pre-conference workshop on Sunday afternoon - Developing Strategic Plans for Employee Benefits.
  • Keynote Speaker: Thomas Rajan, Managing Director – Talent Strategy and People Development for American Airlines.
  • General Session on Wednesday morning – details will follow.
  • Thirteen great workshops

Space in each of the sessions is limited, by design, to facilitate in-depth discussions in an informal setting, and to maximize the valuable networking opportunities CEB benefits professionals enjoy during the sessions.
