HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2014) - Human Resource Executive® magazine, the premier publication focused on strategic issues in HR, today announced the HR Technology® Conference & Exposition, an annual event focused on the business processes and organizational success enabled by HR technology, has been recognized in Trade Show Executive Magazine's 2014 "Fastest 50" rankings.

Its inclusion in Trade Show Executive's "Fastest 50" highlights the significant growth of the HR Technology® Conference as it continues to attract new attendees and exhibitors each year.

"We are very honored to be recognized in Trade Show Executive's 'Fastest 50,' which solidifies our status as the biggest conference focused on HR technology," said Rebecca McKenna, Publisher, Human Resource Executive® magazine. "As more HR executives attend HR Tech each year to discover how to leverage their organization's success through available technology, we are pleased to welcome an ever-growing number of software and service vendors eager to showcase their innovative solutions."

Since its launch in 1998, the HR Technology® Conference has grown considerably each year to become the largest event of its kind, attracting the foremost industry experts, thought leaders and key software vendors across the HR technology space. The event is home to the world's largest expo of HR technology products and services, enabling attendees to compare and contrast the latest solutions from leading vendors in every category.
