The 2021 conference season is going to be a strange one, with many events still TBA or online only due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2020 conference season was over almost before it began. COVID-19 shuttered many major tech events, and many planning to relaunch later in 2020 ended up cancelling altogether. This list of tech events in 2021 will look quite different as a result.
Many events have yet to announce dates, and with good reason: The coronavirus pandemic is leaving 2021 shrouded in uncertainty and announcing dates now could result in another bad investment.
Those events that have been announced for 2021 are here, but be sure to check this list regularly for updates. Some organizations that host event series haven’t released any dates, but still plan to do so. If you don’t see a particular event on this list, check with its host; for instance, some organizations, like O’Reilly, said they’re unlikely to return to any kind of in-person event.
