Travel and tech go hand in hand. If it wasn’t for tech, we wouldn’t be traveling, and if it wasn’t for travel, we wouldn’t be able to see some of the most innovative and new pieces of technology from around the world. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a company, or just an individual with a keen eye for technology, there are some great conferences around the world that will see you up close and personal with the latest tech of the year. If you’ve got a bit of spare time, and definitely have a bit of spare cash, here’s the best conferences being held this year. Whilst you’re there, you might as well turn it into a mini holiday!
Out of the three, India would usually be judged as a third world country. In retrospect, they are behind with the way they use technology to aid their daily living. However, that doesn’t mean to say that they can’t host one of the biggest and best tech conference there is. Ad:tech is a really popular conference for marketing and media technology, so this one might be more suited to those that are from a business background. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay during your trip, check out Courtyard Raipur for a good location! The conference usually runs for two or three days, but if you want you stay in India to be a little longer, there’s plenty to do. If you love history, then visit one of the Buddhist temples. They’re so peaceful to walk around, and it really does help you to appreciate the finer things in life.
China is probably the leader when it comes to innovation with technology. Year on year the country is producing some of the coolest pieces of technology you’ll ever see, especially in the robotics department. In Hong Kong, they hold the largest individual assets event. This is showcasing some of the best global developments in technology, and a lot of people are falling in love with it! China is a little big expensive to visit, but a lot of people buzz of the atmosphere there. There’s so much to do and see, and there’s definitely some weird and wonderful foods for you to try. If you’re going to stay anywhere, try and stay somewhere a bit more central. The further out you are, the harder it’s going to be for you to actually get into the center of places such as Hong Kong.
The bright lights of Las Vegas are enough to draw anyone in for a cheeky little holiday, but it’s really good for tech events as well! IBM Think is just one of the conferences held there this year. This is for workplace tech, so it is definitely more suited for those with business needs. But, it’s great for those looking to improve their offices and businesses in any way. Las Vegas is expensive, and it definitely is the type of place where you should only spend a few nights. Things get wild, and there’s plenty of hangovers to be had. But make sure you do hit all of the main attractions when you have a bit of spare time out of the conference!
