2025 HR Conference cruise

February 22-27, 2025
Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas



Are you looking for a unique opportunity to combine an amazing Human Resources Conference with a sunny vacation in the Caribbean?

Wisconsin State Council SHRM is thrilled to partner with Illinois State Council SHRM, HR Indiana SHRM, Michigan Council of SHRM, and Aspect Marketing & Communications to present an exclusive conference experience, the HR Conference Cruise.

The 2025 HR Conference Cruise is not just a vacation; it's an exciting professional development journey. We're assembling a group of top-tier HR speakers and offering up to 15 SHRM and HRCI recertification credit hours of content in a unique setting. This exceptional event will take place on a five-night cruise aboard the magnificent Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Seas, setting sail from Port Canaveral, Florida, from February 22 to 27, 2025.

The conference format presents attendees with a “surf and turf” concept: four 1.25-credit-hour weekly pre-cruise webinars (turf) are followed by ten hours of onboard learning (surf), which take place in the ship’s Conference Center during two sailing days. This unique format fosters a setting that encourages networking with fellow HR professionals and conference speakers throughout the cruise, creating long-lasting connections.

The HR Conference Cruise is an exciting opportunity to gain valuable HR knowledge combined with a vacation to escape the Wisconsin winter for a short getaway while traveling with family, colleagues, or friends.
