Host a Local Event

Local organizers plan for months to organize an event based on our global theme that can be as simple as an informal gathering or as large as a conference. Each event is unique and centered around bringing value to the community and awareness to the practice of information architecture.

Speak at an Event

Educational talks are a core aspect of World IA Day. Experts and community leaders share their knowledge on information architecture so that we can all learn and discuss.

Do you have a topic related to information architecture and this year’s global theme (Curiosity)? Want to share it with the world? We’d love to hear from you.
