Meet people in your community
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.
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 from Cyndi Wiley, and from there, you can choose sessions throughout the day.
