Make the Connection Zone your home base at Total Rewards'24!

The Connection Zone is where all participants come together to share thousands of innovative ideas, tools, and applications from across the universe of Total Rewards.

Our exhibitors will invite you to test new technologies, explore the many diverse services offered, comparison shop, and purchase the tools you require to keep pace with changing workforces and workplaces.

There is no greater opportunity to dive into the latest Total Rewards solutions and the people who build them, all in one place—and it only happens once a year at Total Rewards!
