Not To Be Missed Remote Conferences Winter 2020

Large gatherings still aren’t possible, but conferences have long made the shift to virtual. Needless to say that those dealing with digital transformation and remote working have geared up to offer immersive Online experiences.

As much as we all want to network and learn in person again, these conferences are the closest we can get at the moment. We have compiled a list of the not-to-be-missed remote conferences until the end of 2020.

We have included the main time zone of each event, but of course, you can attend from anywhere (whether that’s in your PJs, with your morning coffee or after work drink in hand!).
