Affiliate Chapter

Joshua’s virtual conference platform is flexible. Whether you are looking for a single-day or multiple-day event, you’ll have all the bells and whistles to ensure you attendees have a great conference experience at an affordable price.

One Day

Whether you are looking for your event to host panel discussions, present current and up-to-the-minute presentations that include legislative decisions happening overnight, our team is equipped to handle them all.


You plan it. We build it.
It’s that simple.


Custom Design

Setting the tone for your SHRM Conference is important. That’s why we custom design the platform to match your theme or mimic your in-person event venue. Your attendees will enjoy a custom designed event space that feels just like being there.


We’ll help your industry experts prepare their presentations for maximum impact with our training videos. Combined with our unique Speaker webpage where they upload their presentation video and handouts, you’ll be able to relax, knowing we’re gathering everything needed to bring the event to life.


SHRM conferences are designed to promote best practices and help HR professionals to become, well, more professional. The SHRM and HRCI designations are the gold standard when it comes to recruiting the best and brightest HR pros.

On Demand

Attendees can watch sessions any time that works best for them and never have to miss a single presentation. After the conference ends, they have an additional 90 days to catch up on any presentations they missed. That means … more learning … more recertification credits … more connections with sponsors and exhibitors.

Sponsors & Exhibitors

Making sure this important revenue stream is well taken care of is of utmost importance. We provide a training video to explain the virtual expo hall. We make it easy for exhibitors to upload materials into our conference portal where our team will building their booth. There are opportunities for sponsors to provide “commercial” videos to run throughout the conference day to support their products and services as well as logo placement throughout the conference space too.

Networking & Engagement

Making certain you create a great attendee experience is critical to hosting a successful virtual conference. With our Live Chat throughout the platform, attendees can ask questions and engage with speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and their peers during the conference days. Connecting them to Sponsors and Exhibitors is especially effective through our Scavenger Hunt game which is offered in the platform at no extra charge.

Don't just take our word for it

Here's what others say

I think the big key is finding a platform that works for you, but also finding a team to support the platform. There is so much work involved in planning a conference. Joshua was right there beside me all the way. Having someone to support you that understands the importance we place on the attendee, speaker and sponsor satisfaction is critical. It’s so much easier to do your job with the Joshua team versus doing it yourself.

Executive Director for Missouri and Illinois State Council SHRM & Conference Planner Tri-State SHRM Conference
In 2021 we're going to do a hybrid conference, where we're going to have it in-person and will also have the virtual environment. The partnership with Joshua was very instrumental in giving us the confidence to move forward with a hybrid conference given the success that we had with the Joshua virtual platform in 2020. We're obviously using them again. So, that should speak to you as well.
Julie Doyle SHRM SCP, SPHR
Ohio SHRM State Council Director
One of the things we loved about working with Joshua was your assistance for our speakers and uploading all their information and the assistance for the sponsor & exhibitors. As a volunteer organization and only having 1 paid staff member, we knew we didn't have the resources to assist them into the level we'd like.

Working with Joshua Communications made the whole process really smooth. Consistency was integral in being able to really sell the vision to our attendees and partners, even though they had no idea what the virtual conference would really look like. The ability to customize had a powerful effect on setting the tone of what our virtual potential was.
