Join us on World Information Architecture Day 2019! We are dedicating a day to talking and learning about information architecture all around the world! The theme this year is Design for Difference, and we have a fantastic line up of speakers this year and are excited for you to join in the conversation! The field is ever increasing in importance and it is vital to keep abreast of new insights and learn what others are working on and working out.

So come on down, and have and chat about accessibility and inclusivity; or if technology is creating apathy; or how to make your designs accessible for everyone; or on democracy in design. Whatever information you're interested in, it can be architected! 

Everyone is welcome! 


Why attend? 

World Information Architecture Day is dedicated to the empowerment of local leaders. Our celebrations inspire the global growth of information architecture as a community of practice and we value diverse througts and thinkers in our celebration. 

LEARN about information architecture and how you can utilize it in your own projects OR learn how you might already be using it. 

ENGAGE with other like and divergent-minded colleagues and make new friends from different backgrounds and disciplines. 

ENJOY a day of talks, networking, sharing, and learning and of course some swag!
