Event description
This is Ann Arbor's 9th year participating in World Information Architecture Day. Come join us explore this year's theme, "The IA Element."

About this Event

World Information Architecture Day is dedicated to the empowerment of local leaders. Our celebrations inspire the global growth of information architecture as a community of practice and we value diverse thoughts and thinkers in our celebrations. World IA Day is jointly produced by a network of global, regional, and local volunteers.

Past, Present and Future

Each part counts for its own purpose. But all elements must work together. The meaning behind it is the IA element.

World IA Day was created to celebrate Information Architecture (IA) and to empower local leaders keep growing and sharing within their communities.

In 2020, more than anything, we want to reinforce this celebration – highlighting how IA is Elemental (or integral) to having the best results.

How IA ties and binds different ideas involved, the end users, the stakeholders, the designers and the developers. How IA is often the bridge element between them all and tying together through understanding. How IA filters the noise for a better collaboration for a growing community.

IA is essential, IA is key, IA is Elemental.

Join us in Ann Arbor! For more information, visit World IA Day 2020 Ann Arbor.

We can't wait to see you on February 22nd!
