200+ Best Conference to Attend in 2022 by Industries

Whether you want to find new networking or professional development opportunities, learn about the latest industry trends, or connect better with clients, going to a few conferences or events every year is essential for just about every professional. After all, meeting with colleagues and other industry professionals face-to-face or virtually can be an incredibly valuable and worthwhile experience, no matter your goals. The trouble is, in every industry, there are seemingly too many conferences or events to choose from and it’s hard to know which ones are right for you to invest your time and money in.

COVID 19 cases are finally starting to fall and restrictions are being lifted around the world. As a result, many events which have been canceled or significantly modified over the past two years are finally able to resume in-person. But some areas and individuals aren’t quite prepared to return to a large-scale, fully in-person conference. Therefore, you’ll find that many of the conferences have been modified in order to reflect the needs of event organizers, attendees, and the cities in which the conferences are being held.

This is why, we’ve put together a list of the top in-person, virtual, and hybrid conferences for you to review and select from in 2022. This comprehensive list covers several key industries such as event management, marketing, technology, and will allow you to find the perfect events for you to attend in 2022 based on goals, audience, and more.
