Top IT Conferences of 2021

Top IT Conferences of 2021

Everyone accepts that virtual meetings have become an inevitable part of our lives, being a rather valid online meeting replacement. The new formats are making knowledge and experience-sharing processes more accessible and innovative, engaging a diversity of exceptional speakers and listeners.

During the previous year, 2020, the number of organizations opting for virtual events instead of real-life ones has doubled. Companies implement various engagement tools to attract users, from live chats to “happy hours,” enhancing people’s positive experiences from the attended events.

A virtual event is a great way to overstep the hurdle of social distancing and not be limited to the local audience. For some, such meetings become pivotal because they get to know like-minded people and embark on developing joint projects.

Qubit Labs has decided to present a list of great tech events you might want to attend this year. Besides, you might want to take a look at our previous article, mentioning the completed events, the archived sessions of which might become helpful. Below, you will find one or a number of events that might be exactly what you’re looking for.
