2024 conferences

2024 conferences

The sixth annual crowdsourced list of must-attend events.

It’s a new year — and in 2024, there is no shortage of opportunities to convene and connect.

Luminary Labs conducted a survey from November 9, 2023, through January 2, 2024, to crowdsource a list of the year’s most anticipated events and track shifting attitudes toward convening. Conferences come in all shapes and sizes, and as we’ve heard in previous years, people gather for many reasons: Networking, learning, and inspiration topped the list of reasons to attend events in 2024.

Our annual list of crowdsourced conferences, now in its sixth year, is organized around Luminary Labs’ focus areas, with an additional category for events that offer broader coverage of topics across futurism, technology, and innovation, including open innovation.

Where do you go to expand your network or find inspiration for your next big idea? If you don’t see your favorite event on this list, email editor@luminary-labs.com to let us know where you’ll be this year.
