ROCHESTER, NY– February 2, 2021 — Ceipal, an industry-leading talent acquisition automation platform, has recently announced plans to launch its third, interactive, virtual conference, Ceipal Connect, on Thursday, February 11, from 9:00 AM EST to 1:30 PM EST. Procurewise, a next-generation VMS providing total talent management solutions, will co-host this event.

This quarterly conference has seen tremendous success and growth over the last two quarters, with the most recent Ceipal Connect gathering upwards of 2,000 registrants, 1,000+ live attendees, and over 30 thought leaders from across the staffing and recruiting industry. With Procurewise’s support in co-hosting the event to expand the sessions even further, this upcoming event is expected to be the most popular Ceipal Connect yet.

“Procurewise is proud to collaborate with Ceipal on this essential event for the staffing and recruitment industry and clients,” said James Lucier, Executive Vice President of Procurewise. “We are excited to expand the Ceipal Connect agenda with new sessions focused on contingent staffing, direct sourcing, total talent management, and more for suppliers and buyers alike.”

CEIPAL Connect’s signature event, the Shark Tank Session, will take place with a panel of MSP judges. Staffing firms will compete to answer the question, “What Makes You the Supplier of the Future?”

“Total talent management is a huge opportunity for suppliers, buyers, and MSPs alike,” said Sameer Penakalapati, Founder & CEO of Ceipal. “By focusing Ceipal Connect on one of our sector’s most daunting questions, we’re confident that our exhibitors and attendees will illuminate the best and easiest path to success for staffing professionals.”
