The 44 best academic conferences in Asia

So why bother buying tickets to travel and physically attend conferences and other events? If you share this mindset, you may be missing out on some of the best opportunities to take your game to the next level.

Live events such as conventions, academic conferences, workshops, symposiums, forums, will provide you with a unique learning and career-building opportunities that you just can’t find anywhere else.

There’s nothing like being in a room with like-minded people. Ambitious people like you, who are willing to take time away from work to learn something new.

When you sit in a classroom or auditorium, you discover that you’re not alone in wanting to expand your knowledge and skills and bring something innovative to your office or organization. That energy is what is lacking in all online channels, regardless of how much buzz there may there be.

To inspire you, we have compiled a list of some of the top academic conferences in Asia for 2016 and 2017. Check them out!
