Event Info

The #1 Conference the Learning and Development Professionals

Developed and driven by the editors of Chief Learning Officer, the CLO Symposium is where learning, training and development professionals come together to learn from each other. By connecting with people and teams who have faced similar challenges and goals, you can learn practical applications that will help you and your team achieve the results your organization expects. This conference isn’t just for CLOs, though. Get the most out of the experience by bringing your team so you can all learn together. The Symposium is held in the spring and fall in different locations each year, so if one event doesn’t work for your learning department, consider attending the other. We look forward to seeing you there!

SPECIAL NOTE: We understand there has been some confusion with all of the “CLO” events that have sprouted up over the years. The bi-annual Chief Learning Officer magazine CLO Symposium is the ONLY conference produced by the editors of Chief Learning Officer magazine. CLO Exchange, CLO Summit, CLO Forum, Chief Learning Officer and Influencers Forum, among others are NOT affiliated with our organization. Often imitated, but never duplicated, CLO Symposium has been the gold standard for corporate learning events for 15 years. Accept no substitutes.

CLO Symposium Fall 2018 Recap

See what you missed last year!

  • "Of all the learning conferences out there, this one is by far the best for leaders and executives in the learning world."
    Teradata
  • "Thoughtfully framed agendas, compelling attendees and overall great experience."
    Nationwide
  • "Excellent plenary sessions, and I appreciate the exposure to peer group without too much vendor presence (I like vendors just fine but it's great to have an option wherein it doesn't feel as if they are dominating the conversation)."
    National Basketball Association (NBA)
  • "The organization was great. You guys really thought through the scheduling aspect of the conference. I enjoyed getting started at 1:15 the first day. It made it less of an information overload day one. I also appreciated the 15 minute presentations from the experts at the end of the first two days. Much easier to stay engaged with quick hits of learning."
