The largest congresses for HR, T&D and people development professionals in Latin America will take place from June 19 to 21 in São Paulo

The Brazilian Training and Development Association (ABTD) announces the 39th edition of the Brazilian Training and Development Congress (CBTD), which will take place from June 19 to 21 at the PRO MAGNO Events Center in São Paulo.

Aimed at all professionals who develop people, Human Resources and Training & Development, the focus of the debates at CBTD 2024 will be the abundance of possibilities, resources and tools available to achieve companies’ objectives. In addition, understanding how plurality has become a routine in the path of professionals, who need to be increasingly empowered to make faster and more strategic decisions.

“The challenge is to be strategic, broadening our systemic vision, but discerning what is essential to achieve our goals. While we remain aware to respond to the challenges of the present moment and drive individual and collective growth, we must not forget to be human, so that by developing and delivering our potential, we can contribute to promoting more inclusive and collaborative environments, the only way to build a sustainable future,” says Igor Cozzo, executive director of ABTD.

During the three days of the event, attendees will have at their disposal more than 250 activities spread over 16 stages, delivered by more than 200 speakers in different formats of learning experiences, mixing expository and interactive methodologies, with durations ranging from 15 minutes, with TED Talks-style lectures, to 3 hours of immersion in experiential laboratories, as well as recorded lectures, which can be accessed via the event’s digital platform or the app, available in the Apple and Google stores.

The content that makes up the Congress grid is subject to a selection process conducted by a committee of professionals from the sector and is distributed in four areas of knowledge: Learning Methodologies and Processes, Human Capital, Leadership Development and Training Program Evaluation.

EXPO CBTD 2024, the congress’ trade fair, is free of charge and 60% bigger than in 2023. It will feature more than 80 exhibitors bringing new products and services for T&D, as well as talks offered by the event’s sponsors, sharing insights and content developed so that visitors can interact and find the best solutions for their business challenges.

Adriana Chambon, ABTD’s commercial director, talks about the importance of keeping EXPO CBTD free of charge and having spaces for visitors to share knowledge: “We believe that developing people is much more than a shared mission between ABTD, HR and T&D leaders and professionals. It is part of the purpose of being human and that’s why we try to add this value to as many people as possible”.
