It might be hard to believe, but the new year is almost upon us. Are you reflecting on the year gone by? What worked for you in 2018? What didn’t go so well? Are there any areas you want to concentrate on in 2019? For many L&D professionals, a conference provides the opportunity to do a deep dive into best practices, innovations and cutting-edge tools. Not only that—a conference throws you into the networking deep end, which isn’t a bad thing for those of us who work virtually and may feel a little isolated.

With that in mind, here’s a roundup of upcoming conferences on tap for 2019. We hope they inspire you! And if travel isn’t in the cards this year, don’t forget the wide range of free webinars we publish each month—quick bursts of inspiration and a change of pace to boot.

Are you getting on a plane this year? Drop us a line and tell us where you’re going and what you learn!

A quick note: every month we publish a list of free L&D webinars offering instruction across a wide range of training development topics. To ensure you don’t miss out, subscribe to our blog with your RSS reader of choice or follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, or even Facebook
