What important topics do you want to learn about at the conferences on this 2016 senior IT events calendar?

Being a testing professional I follow conferences that favor personal experiences and skills development. I'm less interested in tools and processes promoting conferences.

Habatchii says,

This is a very nicely dated folio of events that should include other strands of senior IT DNA; namely:

http://www.exhibitoronline.com/awards/
http://www.ieee-ecce.org
http://www.networkworld.com/article/3018770/cloud-computing/2016-s-biggest-cloud-computing-conferences.html

I personally prefer the military expo tours, but these are mid to high end packages that will keep all of your senior IT associates happy for the rest of year.

(Note: You may need more than one lanyard.)

Enjoy.
