Attending no-code events is a great way to keep up with industry trends and meet new people.
Personally, our team at Belighted attended The NoCode Summit in Paris and BubbleCon in New York City in October, and we learned so much and met so many influential people.
So, we thought we'd create a list of the top 10 no-code events that you should look out for in 2024. This list will consist of events we have attended in the past and events we plan on attending in the upcoming year.
- Best overall no-code event: NoCode Summit
- Best in-person Bubble event: BubbleCon
- Best virtual Bubble event: Bubble Summit – Co-Building Retreat
- Best for citizen developers: Citizen Development Week
- Best for business owners: No-Code Days - Creatio
- Best for Webflow users: No-Code Conference - Webflow
- Best for Airtable users: Daretable
- Best for women in tech: Women In Product Conference
- Best list of curated events: I Heart #Nocode
- Best for no-code operations: NoCodeOps Conference
1. Best overall no-code event: NoCode Summit
We attended The NoCode Summit on the 16th and 17th of October, and we cannot wait to go again.
The NoCode Summit in Paris is the largest no-code summit in the world, with over 3,000 no-code professionals, 1,600 companies, and 160 speakers coming together to discuss their projects as well as the future of no-code.
Although The NoCode Summit hasn't released the list of no-code leaders who'll speak in 2024, these are the leaders who spoke earlier this year:
- David Siegel, CEO at Glide
- Emmanuel Straschnov, co-CEO at Bubble
- Fabian Velt, CEO at Make
- Mariam Hakobyan, CEO at Softr
- Prakash Chandran, CEO at Xano
The event is split up into four sections:
- NoCoders Games: Here, you can test your no-code skills live by competing with other top no-code developers to build the best no-code game possible. You get four two-hour sessions to develop your game, and once you're finished, a jury will review all games and choose a winner.
- NoCode Summit Party: This is where you can unwind and mingle with other no-code professionals while enjoying live music, food, beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks.
- Impact NoCode Hackathon: This hackathon is a 54-hour event where everyone gets together and solves two complex challenges using no-code and low-code. After the competition, the winners will get a chance to see their solutions used in real life by the French Red Cross.
- Founders Gathering: The last part of the event is a founders gathering. This is an informal seated dinner where you can network with entrepreneurs, investors, and influential leaders in the no-code and low-code space.
If you want to book your ticket, you can do so by visiting The NoCode Summit website and choosing which level of access you want.
2. Best in-person Bubble event: BubbleCon
We also attended BubbleCon from the 24th to the 25th of October in New York City. We really hope there's another one in 2024 because we learned about scaling apps with no-code, growing and managing a Bubble business, and launching Bubble products.
After the speakers, Emmanuel Straschnov and Josh Haas, covered all the topics on the agenda, they went on to answer any questions that the audience had, so if there is a BubbleCon next year, we highly recommend going.
BubbleCon even hosts a hackathon where you compete against no-code professionals from all over the world. At the end of the event, the founders will announce three hackathon winners.
If you missed the BubbleCon in 2023, you can head to Bubble's website and watch all the replays or read the transcripts for free.
3. Best virtual Bubble event: Bubble Summit – Co-Building Retreat
In addition to hosting an in-person event, Bubble also hosts an online no-code conference.
We use Bubble here at Belighted, so attending the Bubble Summit is necessary for us to stay updated on new features.
During the first Bubble Summit in 2023, the founders launched their new agency profile pages, which is meant to help developers land more clients. They also launched the official Bubble Developer Certification and a bunch of new AI features.
The founders then went on to share advice on how you can find qualified Bubble developers and answer any questions that the audience had.
So, if you use Bubble to build applications within your organization, then attending the Bubble Summit is an excellent way to stay up to date with new features and trends.
4. Best for citizen developers: Citizen Development Week
Citizen Development Week is a virtual event that takes place on LinkedIn Live, and it always receives positive reviews on social media. In 2023, Citizen Development Week took place on the 17th to the 21st of April, so if there’s a 2024 edition, you might want to consider signing up.
Citizen Development Week can help you stay up to date on industry trends, best practices, and new tools/innovations that no-code developers have built.
The best part is that this event is for citizen developers, so you don't need to know how to code. The lessons and best practices shared in this conference are much easier to understand compared to more advanced events.
5. Best for business owners: No-Code Days - Creatio
Organized by Creatio, No-Code Days takes place on the 9th of May, 2024 at JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa, USA. It spans across two days, and during this time, several industry leaders will speak about topics like the future of no-code, workflow automation, and customer engagement.
While the previous conference was tailored to citizen developers, No-Code Days are mainly for business-minded individuals who want to understand how no-code will affect parts of their business, like customer engagement and product development.
To attend the full event, it’s recommended that you book a room at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa, which costs around $349 per person, depending on how early you book.
6. Best for Webflow users: No-Code Conference - Webflow
In 2021 and 2022, Webflow brought around 18,000 programmers together across 135+ countries. So if you use Webflow, then attending this conference is a must.
Companies like Apple, Adobe, and Google all have their software developers attend this event, so it's an amazing way to learn more about no-code while building industry connections.
The location where Webflow's no-code conference will take place hasn't been published yet, but if you don't feel like traveling, you can sign up for updates and watch the live event from your desktop.
During these events, Webflow and its speakers will mainly talk about the new no-code features they'll be introducing within the coming year. For example, in 2022, Webflow introduced the Webflow Marketplace and announced its advancements in conditional logic.
7. Best for Airtable users: Daretable
Daretable is Airtable's unofficial user conference. During this conference, experts share advice on how you can streamline your work processes inside Airtable, making it a must if you and your team use Airtable to manage projects.
However, speakers will also discuss other tools you probably use in your day-to-day processes, like Stripe and Miro.
Daretable's main objective is education. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner software developer building your first no-code project or a seasoned veteran with a decade of experience.
The only con is that there are only 75 seats, so it's better to book your spot early. Early bird tickets are $350, and if you buy tickets at the door, it's $600.
8. Best for women in tech: Women In Product Conference
Women In Product is a non-profit organization that aims to help women thrive in product management and development roles, and they host conferences multiple times per year where you can network with other women in tech and learn from the keynote speakers.
Women In Product has both local and virtual events, with their upcoming virtual event taking place on the 9th of November, 2023, where they'll discuss how to use user feedback to improve your product.
During these online and local conferences, keynote speakers like Allison Mnooklin who is a business lecturer at Harvard, and Natalia Castillejo, Product Manager at Duolingo, will share advice and answer all your questions.
9. Best list of curated events: I Heart #Nocode
If you’re looking for a website that curates a bunch of no-code events hosted by various groups, then I suggest visiting the I Heart #Nocode website.
I Heart #Nocode curates in-person and virtual events hosted by companies like Webflow, Creative South, and NoCode North, so it’s a great way to stay up to date on upcoming no-code events.
These events cover no-code sub-topics like designing user-friendly interfaces and building AI applications, so they can help you learn things about the no-code space that you can’t find anywhere else on the internet.
If you're considering joining these meetings, all you have to do is head over to the "Events'' section on their website, choose an event you want to attend, and add it to your calendar. Alternatively, you can sign up for their newsletter, and you’ll receive regular updates on upcoming no-code events.
10. Best for no-code operations: NoCodeOps Conference
NoCodeOps Conference in 2024 will be the first no-code conference focusing purely on the operations side of no-code.
Before the conference, you’ll be greeted with a lunch and all-day barista bar where you can connect with other no-code professionals.
These are some of the speakers expected to present during the NoCodeOps Conference in 2024:
- Jon Darbyshire, CEO of SmartSuite
- Andy O'Neil, founder of Weblytica
- Dan Giovacchini, co-founder of Tango
- Matteo Cossu, Go-To-Market Manager at Hulu
- Jason Miller, VP of Kiswe Mobile
This event occurs across three days. Over 850 people will join, both in-person and virtual, and 90 speakers will share their no-code experiences, give advice, and answer all your questions.
The early bird tickets cost $299 per person, with the regular price being $399. Or, if you want to watch the event live from your desktop, you can sign up for a virtual ticket for $49.
Final thoughts on the top 10 no-code events in 2024
If you’re interested in learning more about no-code trends and best practices while networking with like-minded individuals, then attending no-code events is a must.
All the 10 options I mentioned above are great choices for different types of individuals. However, if I had to choose only one no-code event, I’d choose the NoCode Summit.
The atmosphere is very friendly and you can connect with no-code leaders while enjoying dinner and a couple of drinks. The hackathon and game development challenges are also a great way to test your no-code skills.
