Project Management Conferences and Events 2022/2023

Project management conferences are a fantastic way to meet new people and improve your skills. I always come away feeling energized about where I am in my career and relieved having met people with similar problems to me.

With the global pandemic, all of these live events have looked very different over the past couple years.

Most conferences are back for 2022/3 but some have gone completely virtual, opening up attendance to people that may not have the ability to travel.

We’ve updated our annual post to reflect what we know is going on right now and into the far future.

If you are looking to attend a project management conference in 2022 or 2023, chances are there is something happening near you that will be fun and meet your professional goals.

I’ve compiled this extensive list of conferences both local to me in the UK and around the world.
