The response of governments around the world to the COVID-19 pandemic has essentially shut down the conference circuit for much of 2020. The primary purpose of conferences is networking, and while a number of the conference hosts have organized online events rather than postponing to the end of the year, it just isn’t the same.

There are other companies beyond these, so the full list is worth looking through.
