The IA Conference exists to promote discourse and learning about the intentional design of information environments. It is a gathering of practitioners from around the globe, who practice and teach information architecture and other design-related disciplines. The Conference 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.
Your sponsorship matters
Be part of the world’s most prestigious gathering for information architecture, while helping to create a truly unique conference. The IAC is attended every year by hundreds of influencers and thought leaders in information architecture, user experience design, and content strategy as well as designers looking for something more than just the standard design conference.
Financial support through sponsorship brings services and social events to the IAC that would otherwise not be possible. It also brings students to the IAC who otherwise could not afford to attend.
