After many events being cancelled over the last 2 years, we are hopeful that more conferences will be able to go ahead in the coming months. What’s more, some events are offering both in-person attendance and online streaming – meaning the best of both worlds depending on what you’re comfortable attending.
We’ve rounded up a selection of the UK-based web design, developer and UX conferences that Ballyhoo staff are thinking of attending this year, along with some key information where available.
We’ll be keeping the list as up-to-date as possible, adding new conferences as they become available.
Here at Ballyhoo, we take a proactive approach to industry conferences and to keeping our team up-to-date with the latest industry knowledge. These events present an opportunity to expand your knowledge and network with peers.
Things to Consider
Here are a few points to consider before reading the below and attending the events.
Ticket Price & Discounts
Many of the events are very affordable, with discounts usually available for early birds and students. Some conferences haven’t yet published their ticket price/ability to purchase tickets, however we will keep this up-to-date.
In-Person (& COVID restrictions)
Many events are offering both in-person and online tickets – giving everyone the opportunity to attend regardless of travel and how comfortable you feel.
Many conferences film and release their content on video after the event – often for free, others may charge a small fee. If you don’t have the time or funds to attend in person, this presents an excellent opportunity to absorb and benefit from the content at your leisure.
