IT conferences to attend in 2022

IT events are a great opportunity to learn more about the contemporary trends and new technologies, and to connect with other tech enthusiasts and professionals in the field.

If you haven’t decided yet what IT conferences to attend this year, we’ve gathered the ones we find most interesting in the table below.

Note that due to Covid-19, most IT conferences transformed from on-site events to virtual or hybrid ones in 2020 and 2021. In 2022, organizers seem to return to the on-site format, with some of them offering virtual experience, too. If you want to join any of these conferences in person, remember to consult its website for Covid-19-related restrictions and requirements. Depending on the event, you may be asked to present an up-to-date vaccination proof or a negative COVID-19 test on entry.
