This year has already offered us lots of fantastic Web conferences and events, and guess what, it still hasn’t come to an end! You can continue to plan ahead and make sure that you don’t miss your chance to get away from your desk and meet some brilliant minds and peers — face to face!

In this roundup of conferences, we are more than happy to present to you all the upcoming Web-related conferences. We start with September (which is actually just around the corner) but nevertheless, there still might be a chance for you to grab that ticket! We’ve included events until early 2014, so make sure you don’t miss your favorite one.

Get to know your peers in the Web design community and absorb an enormous amount of information in only a short period of time. Keep in mind that visiting a conference is the perfect opportunity to find out more about the latest techniques directly from distinguished authors and speakers.

Since there is no way for us to include every possible event, we are thankful for any heads up from any of our readers! If you know of an upcoming event that you think shouldn’t be left out on this list, just let us know in the comments section below!
