Global Tech Events To Attend In 2018

The influence of technology on our lives is slowly becoming an endless race to perfection. This year, it’s expected to go even further by introducing and implementing new innovations, thus reshaping the way we think, act, and live. Most recently, the discoveries of 3D metal printing, cloud-based AI assistants, thorough analysis of genetic data, and sensing (smart) cities have helped us build easier, live longer, and work with increased efficiency.

How are these trends becoming predictable? During global tech conferences, the tech industry often presents future products and services, expected to be released in the next month, year, or so. It goes the same for smartphones, computers, smart gadgets, etc. Each year, fans of the IT industry gather in places around the world to hear what many influential speakers have to say on what’s coming next. If you’re a big enthusiast yourself, you can check out below where the next big tech events will be held from June to December.
