The IA Summit is the preeminent conference for practitioners and academics who confront the systemic challenge of designing and managing digital user interfaces and rich information environments.
The IA Summit includes two days of workshops and a three-day main program that attracts the industry’s leading thinkers in information architecture, user experience, and content strategy. Attendees are exposed to timely insights and practical lessons that can be applied immediately at work — and no sales pitches.
The IA Summit is ideal for user experience and information professionals who seek practical and innovative approaches in their discipline and is invaluable for practitioners who design and architect for digital products and services. It embraces discussions about our human-digital experience, complexity and of course, information.
Content is curated to deliver insights into the following areas:
- Information and content architecture
- UX design, research, and operations
- Experience strategy and planning
Workshops for Focused Learning
We offer two days of a-la-carte workshops prior to the main event, on everything from practical UX to working with content management systems. Workshops are led by master practitioners, offering personal coaching in a classroom setting.
Our main program offers a choice of interactive sessions at no additional cost. Your team will gain real confidence by practicing their skills in a collaborative and supportive environment. Each team member who attends IA Summit will become more valuable to your organization by expanding these important skills.
Opportunity to Consult with Experts and Peers
They say the best conversations happen in the hallways. At the IA Summit, over 500+ attendees confer, network, and learn from each other. Our event has attracted attendees from Disney, REI, Marriott, BBC and other public, private, and government sector bodies from blue-chips to startups. Your business challenges are shared by other organizations, and a problem shared is a problem halved. Industry experts are always in attendance — the same ones who wrote the books your team is working from — and they’re only too happy to chat.
Return Ready to Share
Our community values knowledge sharing. Your team will return to work with fistfuls of practical takeaway lessons. Year after year we hear practitioners tell us that the IA Summit changed their life. Send your team, or even better, come with them. You’ll return more effective, more strategically focused, energized and inspired, and ready to take on bigger challenges.
