//THIS WAS ZUKUNFT PERSONAL SÜD 2023
Under the motto "The Big New", Zukunft Personal Süd once again presented itself as the most important live platform for the HR industry on May 9 and 10, 2023. Germany's hotspot of hidden champs attracted 5,000 visitors to Stuttgart's exhibition center to be part of the HR community shaping the future of people, corporate development and transformation. 250 exhibitors, partners and sponsors brought the dynamics of the working world to life with their intelligent products and services. In doing so, the ExpoEvent was more curious than ever - about innovative solutions and groundbreaking approaches to the further development of HR functions. Which was reflected above all in the complex event program. On the keynote stage, experts and influencers inspired with insights from Gen Z to HR transformation, AI and sustainability strategies. And many interactive formats showed the lived practice on site, what the entire industry is striving for: agile working, collaboration instead of silo and dialogic learning.

// Visitor comments
"ZP Süd offers an excellent opportunity to find all services for HR bundled together. Whether it's new HR software from well-known players like Persis or unicorns like Personio, here you can find the right solution for your company and company size. The exchange with the exhibitors is a great enrichment, so you can meet your own providers and even question amendments. I particularly liked the contributions on the Generation Z target group and on networking via LinkedIn. You think you know everything, and then you learn something new. Highly recommended."
Stephanie Spitze - HR Business Partner
"I was very positively surprised by ZP South. This was my first visit there. The size of the event was just right - still manageable, but with really diverse offerings. I thought the lecture program was great. I was able to gather a lot of impulses on my day at the trade fair, also look at my own processes from a different perspective and came back with some new ideas. Gladly again!"
Julia Tiefel - Personalleiterin
"I always enjoy coming to ZP South. This year, I perceive the atmosphere as particularly open, which made networking work wonderfully. My day at the show brought me many good conversations with vendors and other visitor:s. I look forward to next time!"
"As HR workers, we are generalists and have really found everything here at the trade fair that belongs to our daily doing and the corresponding challenges. We didn't have so much specific needs, but rather wanted to do trend research and gather impulses. We really took a lot away with us from our visit to the trade fair.in a pleasant atmosphere, we were able to bring ourselves up to date."
Josipa Milicevic - Personalleiterin
Cornelia Michl - Head of HR
"We are here for the first time and will certainly be very happy to come again. It's great that there are suppliers here who also deal directly with production. We were able to gather many valuable impulses! Together, we were also able to discuss our impressions right away."
Besucherinnen ZP Süd
"My impression of ZP Süd is absolutely positive. I am looking for impulses in the field of recruiting and I am happy about the many content from the lectures, the exchange with other visitors and of course also the exhibitors. It's also nice that there are opportunities to linger and retreat here."
"As an interim manager in the HR sector, I am here above all in search of impulses and an industry and trend check in order to be able to make the best possible recommendations to my clients. I am particularly interested in the topics of personnel development, personnel development planning and personnel controlling. The lecture program, the exhibitors and discussions with other experts from the HR industry give me a great all-round view here."

"We are extremely pleased that the BBGM Forum could finally be implemented after two years of "Corona delay". The presentations in the forum were very well attended; there was also a lot going on at the BBGM members' booths. The communication among each other, the mutual support and the teamwork on the common area worked super (#together strong). The new concept worked out perfectly for us. An absolute win-win situation for us as an association, for our members and also for the visitors. We are looking forward to a new edition at ZPE 22 and CHC 23."

"For us this was the first fair after two years and we are happy to be here. We are very satisfied with the organization. Less quantity, more quality I would say in terms of visitors:inside. It's a bit quieter than two years ago, but people have more time to talk, the quality is correspondingly higher."
