January 4th, 2017 Business

It is a new year and that means there are some new elearning and training conferences you should mark on your calendars!

Every year there are hundreds of conferences nationwide in the United States dedicated to the elearning industry. They provide professionals and businesses alike an opportunity to network and learn.

There is something for everyone at these events. You can find instructional design theory being discussed, new tech tools, technology trends, live-training tips, and so much more.

I’ll preface this list by pointing out that these events come with a cost. As such, you may wish to contact your employer sooner rather than later to inquire about them covering the ticket, travel, and lodging expenses. Depending on your organization you may get some or all of your trip covered.

If you are unable to make any of the conferences below then don’t forget to look for local meetups!

Did not check all, but at least the training conference dates and link are wrong. Points at 2016 conference and dates. Should be Jan. 30 – Feb. 1, 2017!
