Happy September Spree! Wow, what a list of events this month! We’ve achieved a new record of how many events you can attend in a month (go ahead, we dare you to attend all of these at once!), thanks to your contributions in submitting events to the calendar.
In the beginning of the year we saw more online and hybrid events, but now we seem to be accelerating a bit towards getting right back to onsite attendance. The month is about what we expected a September to be from years past pre-pandemic… for existing events. We’ve seen a bunch of new events come onto the stage as well.
Are hybrid and online events a thing of the past? Absolutely not, but the expectation that there would ever been an “all online event industry” is a fantasy.
We’ll often highight a ‘Top Event’ to showcase, but there are just so many this month to choose from. For B2C conventions, take a look at PAX West, SaltCON, and Tokyo Game Show among others. For conferences, take your pick, they are all rather great events with their own unique qualities.
Check out this month’s event list below. You can also click here for the main calendar that includes events into 2023 and beyond.
