Keeping you updated… is a great website to keep up with the upcoming conferences, as well as past events. Clicking on a event, links you directly to the event’s website, social media. What’s more, you get useful information about how many people attended, the topics and the speakers.

Here are some useful links for their conference categories:

Which Web Design Conferences are on your list?

Are you planning on attending any of the events?

We’d love to hear about your experience with past events as well. Still, one of the most important reflections is, if your expectations were met and to what degree. How would you rate web design conferences you attended? We think that leaves room for an evaluation discussion in another article, with feedback for such events. Let us know if that interests you!
