Our SuperGuide to 2014 conferences and events

JD LasicaFor the past several years, the team at Socialmedia.biz has assembled a SuperGuide of the best social media, technology, marketing and media conferences for the upcoming year, which we publish the first Monday of the year.

This year’s calendar of 2014 conferences and events is bigger and beefier than ever. It’s hard to put out separate social media, tech, marketing and mobile conferences, given that more than half of them would bleed over to other categories as well. Thus, one SuperGuide.
