The Ultimate 2017 Events Calendar for eCommerce & Digital Marketing Professionals

Posted on January 13th, 2017 by

Taking the time to attend industry conferences is very important for so many reasons. Here are a few:

First of all, you get to sharpen your skills with new ideas, tips and tactics from the greatest experts and influencers out there. Share your own experiences with others and you may get feedback on your work that gives you new insight.

Second, you’ll be among the first to learn about the latest trends, news and releases in your industry. Not only that, chances are you will learn a few things outside your area of expertise as well.

Third, it’s all about the people you meet! You’ll get the chance to meet your business idols and make great new connections or strengthen existing ones.

We could go on and on. Ultimately, attending events is all about getting expertise, energy and good vibes from like-minded people. It’s an investment in your professional growth and will tremendously help your career as well as the company you work for.

To make it easier for you to keep track of the events that best meet your needs, we’ve compiled a calendar of the most influential digital marketing events and conferences across the globe, covering everything from eCommerce to CRO and Affiliates to Social Media . Make sure to block your calendars for at least one of these conferences, so you can help your business grow. We’ve even included a couple of online events that are totally free to attend, as well as quotes from attendees about what made these events so great.

    Great article Raluca! I am trying to LEADSCON New York this year!
    Could you post my company’s conference? Its called Interact17 located in Columbus, Ohio on the campus of Ohio State University. It is a fun, fast paced two-day event featuring in-depth digital marketing workshops and industry leading speakers sharing insights on content marketing, social media, search and all-things-interactive. Thanks!

    Hi Dustin! Thank you for the suggestion, it’s already on the list! I don’t see the join button though, or details on how people can attend. I think that a more specific CTA would help.
    Have fun at both Leadscon and Interact17!
