ATD 2019’s EXPO hall will feature more than 450 exhibitors offering innovative ideas, tools and applications. Located in Halls ABC, the EXPO hall will be open from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, as well as from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
Additionally, the Expo Hall floor will be a great place for attendees to unwind and destress. There will be quite a few areas that attendees may be interested in visiting.
Relax and Recharge Lounge
One of the new amenities at ATD 2019 is a Relax and Recharge Lounge. This area on the EXPO floor includes ways for attendees to relax, destress, and recharge (both literally and figuratively).
Wellness is a growing trend in the workplace, as more companies are responding to their employees’ desire to incorporate physical and mental fitness activities into their day. According to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, nearly six in 10 millennials say that work-life balance and well-being in a job are “very important” to them. This trend is also impacting ATD 2019.
On the Wellness Stage, we will feature some quick learning sessions, approximately 15-20 minutes planned during open time, to share tips to improve personal wellbeing or maintain a healthy lifestyle—such as work life balance, mindfulness, relaxation, meditation, stretching, etc. These lightweight sessions will help you stretch your mental muscles in a non-traditional manner.
Ice Cream Break
And what better way to destress and reward yourself for successful networking and mind sharing than by eating some ice cream? On Tuesday from 2 to 3 p.m., the EXPO hall will hosting an ice cream break for all attendees, sponsored by Gomo.
