Innovations in Training (IIT)

Curated expeditions into the future of learning at work

Innovations in Training (IIT) events are interactive, experiential and immersive events that kick off after Training’s two main conferences — Training 2020 and TechLearn Conference 2020. And new for this year — we’re introducing an overseas IIT event in Dublin, Ireland, in November 2019!

Training’s IIT events showcase how organizations are applying cutting-edge approaches to improve learning and engagement in the digital enterprise. With our host city as the learning lab, participants imagine, engage and create a new future of learning for their organizations. In this “on-the-road” format, participants see how training is being innovated today through site visits to state-of-the-art centers, Immersive Labs (on VR, AR, AI, IoT, etc.), thought-leader presentations, Applied Innovation Workshops, and Debrief Dialogues. 

These exclusive experiences are limited to 50 attendees per event.

“In the past three days, I’ve felt like a kid in a candy store. This has been absolutely fantastic — all these tools and ways to use simulations and virtual environments.”

Rick McNamara, Senior Manager, Siemens

“I flew down just for Innovations in Training! It’s very, very interactive. We had lots of fun. I felt like a kid on a field trip. We saw a lot of simulations and great work. We did a lot of collaboration. It was a very perfect space for learning. The small group was very helpful because we were all focused. I look forward to coming back soon!”
