About this event

As an volunteer-run nonprofit, we are looking for local sponsors to make this event possible for the fifth year in Boston, MA, on February 22, 2020.

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring World IA Day Boston 2020! Since 2016, we have drawn up to 350 attendees annually from diverse backgrounds and experiences, and reached hundreds more around the world via live-streamed and recorded conference sessions. We need your help to bring this event back to the Boston design, technology, and innovation community in 2020.

Note: Our payment processing method has changed, and we can no longer receive donations via Eventbrite. Contact boston@worldiaday.org for alternatives.

Past events and speakers

This community event has featured world-class speakers such as Dana Chisnell, Christina Wodtke, Richard Saul Wurman, Moshe Safdie, Margot Bloomstein, Steve Portigal, Dan Klyn, Peter Morville, and more. Our 2020 program includes Abby Covert, Information Architect at Etsy, accomplished IA thought leader, and author.

Through the generosity of sponsors, we have been able to provide an incredible education opportunity for local professionals and students, making these thought leaders accessible to the Boston community (as well as remote audiences as far as Tampa, Florida; Sheffield, UK; and Jönköping, Sweden) at minimal or no cost.
