Project Management is one of the most popular work roles in the world, given that there are Project Managers in almost every industry. Most have been educated and trained in their fields, and then keep themselves up-to-date by actively following influential project management blogs, reports, industry journals, online publications, events, and conferences.

Project Management conferences are an incredible way to enhance your knowledge, learn about new methodologies and tools, keep your certifications updated, and expand your network of peers, influencers, and even vendors. Here are some of the conferences that we think would be worth your while in 2019.
