About World IA Day

World Information Architecture Day is a one-day annual celebration hosted by the Information Architecture Institute and held in dozens of locations across the globe. Our celebration in Des Moines will be the 6th World IA Day held here.

We are a community of like-minded professionals and enthusiasts who share the common goal of practicing, learning, teaching, and shaping the future of information architecture and user experience. We share our thoughts, ideas, and work within an open and welcoming environment. Everyone is welcome and our celebrations are always accessible to all.

Venue, parking and transit

World IA Day Des Moines will be held in Meredith Hall at Drake University. It is accessible within the city by car or public transit (several DART Local Routes stop immediately near the venue) and is a short hop off of Interstate 235. 

We have several parking spots reserved near Meredith Hall for the event. 




There is a mix of presentations and workshops on topics drawing from the worlds of information architecture, user experience design, content strategy, product strategy, marketing, and more. We'll start the event with a keynote, and from there, you can choose sessions throughout the day.


We're working on finalizing the schedule. Stay tuned!
