MERIT is a one-of-a-kind forum in which HR and business school directors from all over the world meet to build tomorrow’s workforce.
The first two MERIT Аnnual Summit editions were held in Barcelona (2017) and Lisbon (2018). Each attracted a diverse and international group of more than 500 attendees who came together to learn, present and connect over two-and-a-half days.
The next Аnnual Summit will take place in Vienna in January 2019. The event`s theme will be “Co-creating Learning Organisations”, and will feature an exciting mix of expert and work sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities.
MERIT will also hold a Regional Summit in Singapore (July 2018), as well as customised MERIT Conference events for specific executive education programmes.
