Conferences to Attend for Technical Writers in 2022
The year 2020 has turned the conferencing upside down, and events in 2021 have primarily been online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we approach 2022, many events that were canceled or held online-only are planning a big off-line comeback. So if you didn’t get the chance to visit in-person tech events in 2020 and 2021, here’s some good news: It looks like in 2022, many conferences will get back to almost normal. Fingers crossed, we could be back to face-to-face professional seminars and industry meetups sooner rather than later.
In this post, we’ve gathered high-profile events in the spheres of technical communication. We sincerely hope that it will come in useful!
