Welcome to the 3rd annual World IA Day Boston

This is a free design conference in Boston that celebrates the organization and structure of information for usability, understandability, desirability, and accessibility.

The goal for this day is to promote the practice and education of Information Architecture. You will find this day useful if you’re involved in: design, development, products, services, digital strategies, and interested in anything that involves the organization of information.

This is an event that takes place in all corners of the globe from Los Angeles to London, from Stockholm to Sydney, and from Barcelona to Boston. By thinking globally, we're recognizing that the human condition is universal and we can improve and grow together.

Public Transportation: The closest option for public transportation is Lechmere Station on MBTA’s Green Line, which is two blocks away and offers frequent subway and bus service. Kendall Station, which is on the MBTA’s Red Line, is also a 10 to 15-minute walk from our office.

Parking: We recommend parking in the First Street Garage, which is right next door to the office. Entrance is on Spring Street near First Street. 

The Cambridgeside Galleria parking garage is also an option, though it can be confusing to navigate for first-time visitors. Entrance is on First Street between Best Buy and Sears.
