2022 wasn't the year many people expected it to be; the turn of events, such as the Russian invasion of Ukraine, changed the course of many events and discussions of the year. There was also the burial of Queen Elizabeth II, which was quite sad for members of the royal family and others who sympathized with them. 

However, most of the major world events in 2023 have already been known as it was determined what happened in 2022. For instance, a new Coronation will be witnessed in the royal family after the burial of Queen Elizabeth II. 

Here are some major events in 2023, ranging from things that will happen in politics, pop culture, and 2023 sporting events. 

16-29 January: Australian Open

The sports event that will open the list of major 2023 sporting events is the Australian Open which coincidentally is the first Grand Slam to be held after the retirement of tennis great Roger Federer. 


This will be a major event for all sports lovers as eyes will be on many athletes, such as Tennis great Nadal, who will be expected to increase his Grand Slam single-men tally to 23. Other popular athletes expected to perform at the event are Petra Kvitová, Danielle Collins, Djokovic, Victoria Azarenka, Naomi Osaka, and many others. 

24 February 2022: A year Remembrance of the Russian invasion of Ukraine 

In 2022, the world was hit with one of the biggest tragedies in a long time, the Russian invasion of the Ukraine territories. This happened on the 24th of February 2022 after Vladimir Putin invaded the country under the guise of a "special military operation."


Since the invasion of Ukraine, several tragedies have occurred on both sides, with Ukraine taking the majority of the blows. As 2022 ends, Ukraine is suffering from a major power outage, and the winter even makes it harder for people to survive. Next year, this will be one of the major events in 2023 that will be remembered. 

6 May: King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, are Coronated. 

The coronation of King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, will be one of the biggest major world events in 2023. It will be the largest and the most historic, judging from the events leading to the coronation.


If this event is successfully pulled off, it will become the first coronation of a British monarch in the 21st century. In contrast, Queen Camilla will become the first to be crowned since Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, in 1937. 

May 19th: G7 Summit 

Another war-related event of 2023. The Japanese city of Hiroshima has been appointed as the city that will be hosting this big summit. Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida was the major force behind the decision to host the G7 summit in Hiroshima.


With increasing tension over Russia using nuclear weapons in Ukraine, the summit will primarily advocate for the disarmament of nuclear weapons in the war. Hiroshima will probably be speaking from experience, as the city experienced the bad side of nuclear power in World War 2. 

9-13 May: Eurovision Song Contest 

The 67th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest will be one of the greatest festivals of 2023. It was originally slated to happen in Ukraine, but the Russian invasion shifted the venue to Liverpool in the United Kingdom. 


The event will kick off on the 9th of May, while the finals will be held on the 13th of the same month. The Russian invasion of Ukraine may be remembered in the event before it kicks off. 

24th - 27th of April, RSA Conference 

The 24th - 27th of April will hold one of the biggest tech conferences of the year. Every interesting year has had some big tech events, and 2023 might not be left out. 


The RSA Conference is a leading security summit in the tech industry, and numerous tech organizations worldwide attend it. It would be a big one in 2023 as many companies aim to secure their organization from cyber threats. 

28 May – 11 June: French Open

Sports events take up most of the year. We witnessed it in 2022, especially during the FIFA world cup held in Qatar, which ended up with Argentina winning the trophy.

The French Open will be held from the 28th of May to the 11th of the next month, and it promises to be one of the biggest 2023 sporting events. During the last edition in 2022, Rafal Nadal won it for the 14th time. 


Another sporting event worthy of note is the Women's World Cup 2023. The highly anticipated event will be co-hosted in Australia and New Zealand from July to August 2023.

14th-17th June: Viva Technology 

Imagine mentioning all the major events in 2023 without naming one for your direct benefit. That would be selfish. Don't worry; we've got you covered. 

Viva technology is a tech conference attended by those in different tech industries, such as Ethereum, Binance, Google, Microsoft, and others. In this event which can be attended physically or virtually, you can connect and create strategic relationships with people. 


It is acclaimed to be a meeting of the brightest minds in tech and marketing. With many startups becoming huge brands, the VIVA Technology Conference could be the gateway to establishing more powerful startups in the new year. 

18th of June: Turkey Elections 

If there's anything that can be assured in 2023, there will be a lot of political tensions. Not to make you depressed, but brace up for one of the most trying times in recent times.

The most controversial elections in the world will be coming up in 2023 in Turkey. The elections are expected to be held on the 18th of June, 2023, and the current President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has already made it known that he will be running again.


Opposition parties in the country are not considered strong enough to beat the popular Erdogan at the polls. However, it is too early to predict an outcome as uncertainties would gradually clear out. 

20 July – 20 August: 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup

Imagine the thrills the men's FIFA world cup of 2022 gave to football fans worldwide. Do you still remember that final between Argentina and France? It gave you orgasmic feelings, right?


Those feelings might be recreated next year as one of the major 2023 sporting events is the FIFA women's world cup which will be hosted in Australia and New Zealand.

September: G20 Summit 

The G20 Summit is an event that will be held in September 2023, and India will host it. Many topics concerning the world will be discussed at this summit. 

With so many economic and security challenges besieging many countries today, decisions made at the September G20 Summit would be critical for governments worldwide.


The G20 Summit comes under one motto, "One earth, one family, one future," and many world energy and food security decisions will be discussed here. 

26th - 27th September: AI & Big Data Expo

AI is taking over many industries; there's a high chance that you have heard about ChatGPT and how it will revolutionize many sectors. The biggest AI event of 2023 will be held on the 26th and 27th of September. 


It is so big of an event that top tech leaders such as the president of Google, AWS, Zoom, and others will be attending it. This event will probably change the outlook of AI in 2023. 

20 October: 50th Anniversary of the Sydney Opera House

Imagine an art center that hosts more than 8 million people annually. That's some big numbers over there. 


The 50th celebration of the Sydney Opera House in Australia will be on the 20th of October, and many personalities in the entertainment industry are expected to be there. 

13th-16th November: Web Summit 

Next time you are asked about the biggest tech event in 2023, you are free to mention the Web Summit. The Web Summit is an annual technology event that attracts over 70,000 people to Lisbon, Portugal.

The major highlights of this epic event include interaction among tech executives, collaborations, brand awareness, and networking.


This event is so big that it is almost compulsory for giant tech companies such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, and Spotify to attend. Of course, many tech decisions and announcements will be made there.
