Quick Summary Ten valuable eCommerce conferences, both virtual and in-person, that you should attend in 2022.


In-person eCommerce events were the norm before the COVID-19 pandemic took over. As a result, virtual or online events became more common, and these turned out to be just as beneficial if not more — with one of the main advantages being the ability to attend events remotely. The newfound accessibility of these events is a positive spin on the otherwise bleak restrictions made by the pandemic. 

However, in recent months, the severity of the pandemic seems to have lessened, mainly because of the worldwide vaccination rates exceeding 60%. Consequently, some companies have gone back to holding on-site events, with proper precautions.

Let's take a look at what’s coming up in the marketing world in terms of on-site events and events that you can easily attend from the comfort of wherever you are.

Here are a few valuable virtual and in-person eCommerce-related events coming up in 2022 that you won’t want to miss.
