We’ve put together a list of all the web design and development conferences and events happening in 2020. When you work in web design and development, one thing you always need to be mindful of is keeping up with the latest trends and technologies. Without this information, it won’t take long before your business is left in the dust behind your competitors.

This is why attending conferences is vital to the health of your sole-proprietorship or agency. These web design and development conferences help you keep “in-the-know” about what’s going on in the industry and can also act as an excellent means of connecting with new potential clients. So, mark your calendars and get ready to learn and make some meaningful industry connections.
