Schmitt, director of Research for the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM); and Kelly Cartwright, vice president and general manager of The Newman Group, a leading provider of talent management consulting services to enterprise organizations.

Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedXpertise, said, "Early adoption of the HR Demo Show's model by these industry leaders is further validation of our approach to delivering a trade show experience that is meaningful for our attendees. Rather than to waste our attendees' time with contrived presentations, we're getting right down to business by giving them what they really came to see -- what the benefits are they can derive from their next software investment."

HRO Today magazine's technology columnist and the HR Demo Show's Conference Chair, John Sumser, shared, "I'm honored to welcome these industry experts to the HR Demo Show. We're changing the definition of the HR technology trade show and we're looking forward to welcoming HR and IT professionals to our December event in Las Vegas."
