Online marketing events in 2021

This time last year the pandemic was still something new, that we were starting to discuss. We didn’t think it was something too serious. We were still travelling for events and didn’t think that will change as fast as it did.

Ah well, we’ve adapted and our businesses survived, one way or the other. We’ve learnt to deal with uncertainty and now it’s time to focus on growth too. And what better way to grow than in a community with your peers, learning from the best in the industry and networking with people doing things similar as you?

So, I’ve done some research, asked my colleagues and connections to put together a list of upcoming marketing events from 2021. Given the current context and how we think the situation will evolve, we haven’t included any live events. There is too much uncertainty around being able to organise or attend them, even in a restricted format, so virtual will still be your best bet.

I’m afraid our research has mostly produced North American and European events, but let’s fix it. You can submit an event you haven’t found by using the form at the end of this article.
