Philadelphia 2016

Pennsylvania United States

Our world is full of information. Whether we are using the latest mobile app, watching the local news, or navigating our way through the post office or grocery store, information is all around us. Because of the ubiquitous nature of information, information architecture is not just practiced by specialists. Instead information is architected by people holding all sorts of titles, coming from all walks of life.

World IA Day focuses on the telling these kinds of stories. Stories of information being architected by everyone from teachers to business owners; technologists to artists; designers to product managers. With representation from 39 countries around the world, we believe that the power of similarity and the beauty of difference between these stories will inspire those who work in information architecture, as well as those who may be new to it.


Come celebrate and learn about the world of Information Architecture at Philadelphia's 2016 World IA Day. We will have a day full of speakers, conversation, connecting, and learning about what the state of the art is for IA in Philadelphia and beyond.

University of the Sciences will host this year's event in their state-of-the-art facility at the McNeil Science and Technology Center.

Our generous sponsors have allowed us to provide food and coffee breaks for attendees throughout the course of the event, as well as the following giveaways.
