Virtual Events: The #1 List of Virtual Conferences in 2022

Bizzabo Blog Staff
Share

Virtual events are nothing new but — as we discuss in our comprehensive guide to coronavirus and events — we’re seeing many organizers pivot from in-person to digital. If this sounds like you, check out the most comprehensive list of virtual (and hybrid) events and conferences for 2022.

For many event organizers, virtual events present a new opportunity for overstepping the hurdles of social distancing and engaging audiences around the world. Planners have already made their intentions clear, with 93% of event marketers already planning to incorporate virtual events into their strategy in 2022 and beyond.

But we also recognize that best practices around virtual events are still in their early stages. This is where working with experienced event and marketing agencies can prove to be a plus.

We put together this guide on virtual events for two reasons:

  1. To serve as a resource for event organizers seeking to learn how their peers are approaching the rapidly evolving channel of virtual and hybrid events.
  2. To help event organizers get the word out on their own upcoming virtual events. (You can submit your event here to be reviewed and potentially added to this list.)

Note: As 2022 goes on, we plan on updating this post quarterly. But if you see any outdated information, please drop us a line.
