So other than the MCSMN annual conference in October – which is a given – what other conferences do you attend throughout the year? What goes into choosing a conference?

For me it's location, content, cost vs personal mission/Ikigai fit I usually go for learning rather than networking, and usually in an area in which I am average rather than strong. I use them to think more horizontally rather than vertically. (To go deep for me it’s usually requires alone time, deep work. For me conferences are to broaden, not dive..,)
I will do Mayo every other year, so 2020 probable.
I select 1-2 local Medical conferences – most recently Obesity Medicine in Portland
Another strong interest is in AI. 2 large conferences locally AI Nextcon is big and Seattle – with Amazon and Microsoft – has a large presence. Always good representation at these AI conferences from social media groups.
I go a local WordCamp (WordPress) this winter. If you Blog, these are the best value for the money!
I am going to Pacific Northwest Writers Conference in Seattle this September.
I really really really want to go to London Deep Learning/AI Conference this fall but too much money and I have a sick kitty on chemo.

I attend Seattle Interactive Conference every year because it's close to my office and our entire team goes. It has a good mix of speakers and topics which I appreciate. I also attended Girlboss Rally for the first time this year. I chose that because of the content mix (leadership, negotiation, investment, astrology and more!).
