The Best Data Science Events and Conferences to Attend in 2019

Data and analytics is one of the fastest-growing and highest-priority domains in the modern enterprise. The marketplace continues to be pushed forward by new tools and technologies, as well as increased adoption by organizations small and large. With revenue growth in the BI and data analytics space set to soar in the months and years ahead, it’s no wonder that user conferences are becoming so popular. No matter your interest, industry or use case, there’s likely an event for you.

We do our best to provide you with the best resources, including our own buyer’s guides and best practices. Sometimes though, you need extra exposure, the kind you can only get in person.

We understand, and that’s why we’ve scoured the web and created this list of 2019’s most exciting data science (and machine learning) events and conferences to attend. If you’re looking for top-notch keynotes, interesting speeches, best practice demos, and legitimate networking opportunities, fill your calendar. All of the conferences listed are organized by independent analysts, researchers, and media outlets; no vendors allowed (well, we can’t promise they won’t be in attendance). Events are listed in chronological order and may include additional dates (if applicable).
