Are you searching for the best cloud conferences to attend in 2022?
The business world appears to be finally managing to live with the COVID pandemic. Businesses and organisations have finally been able to continue into some degree of normalcy.
The same can be said for the conference industry, including cloud conferences.
Although restrictions are in place, cloud conference attendees can finally get back to meeting face-to-face.
Cloud computing players are preparing to showcase the latest developments at in-person events next year. Plan your next round of cloud conferences with this 2022 guide.
Why cloud conferences?
Whether virtual or in-person, cloud computing conferences are an essential resource for IT and computing professionals. Attending cloud computing conferences is the primary way to keep informed of the latest industry trends and network with others.
Plus, cloud conferences present new cloud technologies that IT professionals can use and the potential for further business collaboration.
In 2020, technology conferences went digital due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, some conferences opted for a hybrid model with limited attendees and most participating virtually.
Next year, 2022, that trend could continue but with a greater emphasis on in-person conferences. Many cloud vendors intend to tentatively plan in-person shows.
