February might be the shortest month of the year, but it's still full of plenty of events that marketers in the Chicago area will want to check out. Each month, we present a roundup of conferences, classes, workshops, and opportunities for Chicagoland marketers to meet with their colleagues and build their knowledge. Here's what February 2017 has in store:

General Assembly's Career Camp

This event, which takes place from January 30-February 2, is a great opportunity for people who are looking to expand their skills in areas like web development, user experience design, and digital marketing. Marketers might be especially interested in the sessions about breaking into digital marketing, using Linked In, and typography. Tickets to most of the workshops during the Career Camp are $15, or you can get an all access pass for $45.

Innovation Summit 2017

A number of great panels and presentations will be taking place, covering topics such as the Internet of Things, voice search, virtual reality, customer centricity, machine learning, and much more. Tickets to this event are $1,595.
