2021 Marketing Events: Virtual and In-Person

The marketing event industry was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. With mandatory stay-at-home orders throughout the majority of 2020, the events and conferences that we were all looking forward to attending either went virtual, got postponed, or were cancelled altogether. This year, many organizers are preparing ahead of time to host their event virtually, while others are making their return to live events with extra precautions added, as well as virtual components for those who feel safer at home but would still like to participate.

Though COVID-19 is sure to have long-lasting effects on the marketing event industry – with the biggest downside being that it will be much harder to meet potential clients in person – there is an upside to these changes. Because many are going virtual or adding virtual components, marketers may now be able to participate in events that before were too far away or too expensive to travel to in person. They can also interact with other professionals that they may not have otherwise, even if it is only virtual for now. Looking on the bright side will help marketers to stay motivated through all the changes. Don’t let this pandemic get in the way of your learning, networking, planning, and growing as a marketer!

Below is our list of the best marketing events and conferences to check out in 2021.
