    You didn’t mention http://www.seattleinteractive.com/

    From the site:
    “With its “Point-of-View” platform, SIC 2012 provides a unique stage for entrepreneurs, technologists, advertisers, designers, entertainers, online business professionals and thinkers to converge: Visionary speakers on technology, creativity, and emergent trends will leave you inspired, and networking events promise to better connect you.”

    SIC was great last year and I’m looking forward to SIC 2012!

    • 2

      That one is in October. SM plans to publishh this post twice a year. Once in February to cover events up to around the beginning of September, and then again in late July/August to cover events up to around the first half of February.

      • 3

        Hey Louis, any updates on the next post? :)

        • 4

          Are there any good conferences coming up in the second half of 2012? I’m particularly interested in any in the D.C. area so I wouldn’t have to travel.

  2. 5

    You forgot to include An Event Apart (Seattle April 2012) – AEA is easily the best web dev conference I’ve been too. But that’s a great list of conferences. Wish I could attend more than one a year!

    • 6

      Oh, looks like it was greyed out on their home page, so I assumed it was already past or something. Looks like it’s sold out with limited workshop seats available, so I’ll add that. Thanks.

    Thanks for these conference list articles – mighty handy.

  7. 12

    Does anyone know of conferences in Philly or Baltimore area?

  8. 13

    Can’t believe it ! ‘seems there’s not even ONE event in France … ‘:(

  9. 17

    Are there no conferences in Los Angeles in the next 7 months? I know Adobe Max is in October, but is there really nothing until then?

  10. 18

    My 2 days old comment disappeared somehow :) so posting again. Thanks for the list Louis! It is incredibly helpful. You might consider adding Web Rebels conference as well. It will be in May in Oslo, Norway.

  11. 20

    Hi! Nice collection. I made a quick research weeks ago and also wrote down a list of conferences in 2012. Maybe you will find something new.

  12. 21

    Wish there was more conferences in Australia, To bad all the ones currently happing are way to expensive, even the student prices are stupidly expensive….. Wont be attending any on the fact that after buying ticket and travelling its totalling nearly $1000 before even getting in the door or having anywhere to stay… Not ideal for a freelancer.

    Great list! New on the scene: UX Speakeasy hosted at the San Diego Zoo on March 31, 2012. Stellar line-up of speakers from Russ Unger, Eric Reiss, and many more. The speakeasy also provides free workshops on gaming research, using card sorting for IA, and other great topics if you know the secret code!
