Design professionals aren’t one-dimensional beings. We’re well-rounded individuals, with loads of disparate interests. The IA conference (IAC) honors this fact with mixers and activities aimed at the more creative, social side of our attendees. And, to be honest, what better way is there to network than to just cut loose and have fun with 300 of your new best friends in a low-stress, low-pressure atmosphere?
Enjoy the hidden musical talents of some of our own. Bring your acoustic instrument of choice or just sing along! Want to lead a song or two? Be prepared to teach others chords and lyrics. Don’t worry if you haven’t tried something like this before—everyone’s welcome, including non-musicians. We’re all in this together!
With this crowd, your karaoke song is a 100% guarantee of success. The only barrier between curious audience member and adored stage performer is you.

An informal sharing time of awesomeness. After the last keynote and conference closing, anyone is welcome to come on stage to share anything they like. It’s an amazing time where you can feel the IAC community togetherness. People share what the conference means to them, tell stories stories, do interpretive dance, explain ways to get more involved with the IA community – you name it, it’s shared during 5-minute madness. Not to be missed!
