2020 is here, and with it are all the usual tech conferences and events. If you’re a tech professional who travels for business, check out this list of events–you’re sure to find something that suits your speciality. We will update this list as new events and conferences are announced and dates are finalized. 

Note: The coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has forced many conferences to cancel, postpone, relocate, or change to an online-only model.
