What is the
HRSouthwest Conference?

The HRSouthwest Conference powered by DallasHR, is one of the largest regional education and networking events for HR professionals and those who supply products and services to the HR industry.

Recognized as the official State of Texas SHRM Conference, the event has been held face-to-face in Fort Worth, Texas every October for 78 years. More than 1,400 practitioners plus speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors – 2,400+ participants in total attend the regional event.


Our conference is important to HR practitioners: recertifying their SHRM and HRCI designations, discovering the latest in HR products and services, and networking with peers and others to share best practices, compare “war stories” and have fun. Given the circumstances brought by COVID-19, we will deliver the 79th Annual Virtual HRSouthwest Conference over the same three days in October.
