Networking events are a great way to make valuable connections with experts in your field that you can learn from. And they are also really important when it comes to finding new clients and customers who can pay you for your expertise, products, and services.
Below are four networking opportunities that you definitely do not want to miss out on in 2016.
1. Future of Web Design
The Future of Web Design conference will take place in London from the 25-27 April 2016, and it is the 10th annual event for web developers and designers who are striving to be the top of their field.
The conference focuses on the latest tools and trends in web development, from HTML and CSS, to responsive design, usability, UX, and front-end development. Therefore, if you work in the field and you want to network to share your capabilities with others, or if you want to attend to learn something new, definitely don’t miss out on the chance to boost your career.
2. Independent Sector National Conference

This conference takes place every year to bring together the best people who wish to make a positive impact upon their communities.
If you work in the non-profit sector, this is a perfect chance to learn about a wide array of important topics, and you can also use the time you spend at the conference to network with the brightest minds in the world of non-profit work so you can learn what’s being done to tackle the planet’s toughest issues.
