What’s the difference between incoming and upcoming?
We use upcoming to talk about events or things that will happen soon:
- the upcoming elections
- an upcoming conference

Upcoming is used for things that are approaching in time.
The word incoming is used for things that are approaching in space, or things that are arriving, things that you are receiving:
- incoming missiles

Upcoming – things that will happen soon; incoming – things that are coming in space or that you are receiving.
