2022 was the first year the world got back to normal. We loved meeting up with old friends at the conferences and making new friendships.

The energy was contagious, after spending years communicating through screens on Zoom. 2023 is shaping up to be even better and we’re looking forward to another year of events.

In this calendar, we will provide a brief overview of each event such as the date, location, registration, speaker information and more.

Here’s the full calendar of events for next year.
