We are starting to pull together our list of 2021 product conferences.
A lot has changed in the world since we last published our 2020 product conferences list. Due to COVID-19, many of the events on our list had to shift to virtual events. We expect the same will happen in 2021. Nevertheless, we are finding that conference organizers are getting better at offering compelling online events. Even though we may not be able to meet in person, we suspect many of these events will be worth checking out.
This list is by no means exhaustive. If you know of product conferences that are not on the list and you think they should be, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll also keep updating this list as we hear about more events.
For 2021, I haven’t decided which product conferences I’ll be attending or presenting at, but I’ll update this post once that changes. I’m hoping to release my upcoming book in the first half of the year. Once it’s out, I’ll be doing as much speaking as I can to get the word out. So look for a significant update on which events I plan to attend by the first quarter of 2021.
