With 2012 serving up the latest and greatest technology, from smartphones to industrial solar arrays, this year is only going to get bigger, better, and more exciting! Whether your interest is in the world of gadgets, or strictly corporate technology, the many upcoming tech conferences give each of us the opportunity to be better at everything that we do for both work and play.
Whether you work in an industry where technology plays a major role, or you simply like keeping up on what the wonders of scientific endeavor have whipped up for us this year, get ready to hit the road all year long with these four technology conferences (and also these four conferences on social media) to create your traveling schedule for 2013:
1. Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013
If you’re a true technology lover, there is no better way to start the new year than by attending the world’s largest showcase of consumer technology.

2. Technology Frontiers 2013
Aiming to take a broader look at the technology that powers our lives, the Technology Frontiers conference promises to help you to “transform your work, your life, your world,” and the wide-angle view that the event maintains should do exactly that.
Whether you need ideas in planning the future of your business endeavors, or you want to deck your entertainment center out with the latest technology that suits you and your family, this is a can’t-miss event for technology enthusiasts and those in the industry alike!

The Next Web will take attendees on a two-day odyssey of learning about what is around the corner as far as standards and ability are concerned, helping everyone to better understand what the web is, how it works, and where it’s going!
