A list of the top 2023 digital marketing conferences we recommend that cover everything from advertising to social media to influencer marketing.

In-person conferences came back in full swing last year, but many of these conferences also offered online versions as well for those still not fully comfortable with travel or large crowds. This year, we are seeing most conferences only offer in-person tickets for live sessions with an option to download content after the conference. Though there are still a few fully virtual or hybrid events offered, as well.
