Project Management Conferences are a great way to keep up with the latest news, case studies and trends and often, these conferences allow vendors to make announcements about upgrades to their products. Also, by attending an industry conference, you can develop your knowledge and skills that can help advance your career. They’re great for networking with like-minded project professionals.
Many of the conferences in 2024 are still offering virtual attendance, which provides opportunities to attend further afield conferences cutting down on travel. If possible, we recommend attending at least one conference in person that is closer to home.
