Top 5 Tech Trade Shows You Must Attend in 2019
The trade show industry is a multi-billion year-round industry. There are so many conferences here that this list could go on and on. I elected to choose from this plethora of trade shows the top 5 that have the best speakers, most interesting cutting-edge companies, and biggest outreach for 2019 (in no particular order). I have chosen to focus on technology because that’s the field I’m most passionate about.
CES 2019 – (January 8-12) This is one of the biggest and most important annual trade shows. If you want to see where we’re heading, with technology then you must be here. All the biggest tech companies present their newest and most cutting-edge products here. This conference alone warranted its own blog post from me.
RSA 2019 – (March 4-8) is another big tech and security trade show. Every year this conference happens in San Francisco. Here you’ll meet the experts and companies that are at the forefront of technology battling cyberthreats. You can see the newest methods in action. Plus, you get to hear industry leaders speak first hand.
Gitex 2019 – (October 6-10) is a week-long conference held in Dubai (which is itself a technological wonder). Gitex showcases technology especially from the Middle East and Southeast Asia. By 2020 the value of tech originating from this part of the world is expected to reach over $170 billion, so keep on eye on this conference if you want to see the future.
HIMSS 2019 – (February 11-15) takes place every year in Orlando, FL. This isn’t a conference purely focused on tech, but on medical technology. Roughly, 50,000 people attend this conference from over 90+ countries to bring together their ideas for medical tech.
ITEXPO 2019 – (January 30-February 1) our shortest conference on this list, but don’t let that trick you about its’ importance. It’s a tech show, yes, but more focused on business technology. It still has an impressive list of speakers this year and wonderful for networking and meeting industry leaders. There you have it! The top 5 most important tech conferences that will happen this year. I’ll see you there.
