Event description


****WE'RE NOW SOLD OUT!!****

On the 4th edition of Landing Festival, the team decided to create something new: the Tech Hiring Conference.

The event will take place at Pavilhão de Portugal on the day before the Landing Festival kicks off, mark your calendars for June 28th!


It’s an event entirely dedicated to Tech HR / Recruiting professionals only.

Tech recruitment is becoming more and more of a big challenge, why don't we discuss it alongside the HR / Recruitment community? Problems like this are best tackled if solved by sharing within a community.

To spice things up, we've invited several keynote speakers and international experts to come and share with us their knowledge and experience – check them out below, keep reading.


We're presently running a survey to map the current state of Tech Recruitment in Portugal, the results will be showcased exclusively at the beginning of this conference.

We've also invited several international speakers who will provide their expert intel for the discussion about challenging topics that HR / Recruiting professionals face and the trends to watch out for! Besides, we will also have several panels to enrich and extend these discussions and there will be of course a moment to network, exchange insights and share experiences :)
