From Teflpedia

A conference (/'kɒnfərəns/) is a meeting of professionals in the ELT profession, dealing with organizational matters, matters concerning the status of the profession, and scientific or technical developments.[1]

They are opportunities to give lectures or training sessions, present posters and research, undertake professional development, conduct networking or engage professionals in sales pitch of whatever you’re selling.

An online conference is online.

They’re often organised by teachers’ associations.

It’s worth looking on YouTube for interesting videos of conference talks by ELT gurus like Krashen, Thornbury, etc.
