51 product management conferences to check out in 2022

Are you starting to think about your travel and professional development plans for 2022? We’ve put together a comprehensive list of the product management conferences and events you can look forward to in 2022, organized by month. 

In 2022, we’re seeing a lot more cautious optimism about the opportunity to gather in person. Many events are offering both in-person and virtual options so you can choose to attend in whatever way you feel most comfortable. 

We’ve tried to be as thorough as possible with this list, but given the global situation, new events may be added or existing ones may be changed. The good news: Many event organizers are offering worry-free options so you can easily switch your in-person ticket to a virtual one. Also, please keep in mind that prices are subject to change over time as early-bird offers expire.
