The event might be over, but 20+ valuable sessions are now available to view at your convenience.

Welcome to One Place 2021

Benefitfocus’ annual One Place conference brings together benefits and health care leaders from across the country for two days of collaboration, networking and inspiration.

Our industry has experienced significant transformation over the last year – from how health care is administered, to the way we work and even the benefits people value most.

At One Place 2021, over 1000 benefits and health care leaders gathered to explore those shifting industry dynamics – and to make the connections they need for whatever the future holds. Check out our 2021 Keynote Address by clicking below. 


What to expect from One Place 2021

While we’ll gather virtually this year, you can look forward to the same meaningful content and connections you’d expect from a live event. In fact, by attending sessions live and on-demand, you’ll be able to take advantage of even more of what One Place has to offer.

Through panel discussions, product deep-dives and case studies, we’ll dig into the challenges we face and how we can address them together to create opportunities for our customers, our businesses and our employees and members.

So trade out your walking shoes for headphones, and get ready!

Thought-provoking general sessions from industry experts

Breakouts that dive deep on trends impacting your business

Small-group networking to foster meaningful connections
