Business conferences are a beautiful thing. To some, a conference all about the world of business may seem a tad dry, but a business-minded person like you knows that’s far from the truth. Only at a conference can you have the chance to meet, and learn from, professionals and industry leaders who have transformed the business world.
By attending a business conference you have the chance to grow your network and expand your knowledge in a very dynamic setting. A wide array of business conferences are held throughout the continent all year round, but here’s a few you should definitely check out in 2015.

A technology conference of a different sort, Biofabricate doesn’t focus on software or digital technology like so many others. Instead, the purpose of Biofabricate is to educate professionals and offer first hand experiences with the fascinating world of “grown materials.” Advertised to cover everything from “yeast and bacteria to mushrooms and mammalian cells,” Biofabricate will showcase the new biotechnologies the world’s leading researchers have created and their applications in the business world.
Fearless Females: Women in Tech Panel Event
- When: Thursday, April 23, 2015 (6:00pm-9:00pm)

More of a panel discussion than a full-blown conference, this Tech in Motion event still shouldn’t be missed, and will offer you the same level of information and knowledge. As the name would suggest, the Fearless Females: Women in Tech Panel will showcase the stories, struggles, and accomplishments of women who have made their mark in the world of technology. Networking will play a key role in the event, with a cocktail networking happy hour and “wrap up networking” opening and closing the panel.
