IAI NEWS - http://www.iainstitute.org

Greetings IA Institute!

As Director of Events and Marketing, I am charged with the
responsibility of planning and executing the IDEA Conference. As you
may or may not know, this year's IDEA Conference is being held in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the MaRS Centre, largely due to the
enthusiasm and evangelism by Mario Bourque and Matthew Milan. Mario
has been one of the guiding lights for the IDEA team as we've been
exploring the best possible ways to put on the best possible
conference in Toronto. I'm proud to say that I feel like we're very
much on the right track!

There are many other folks to thank, as well. Will Evans, Brad
Simpson, Jonathan Knoll (Yoni) and Michael Leis have really stepped-up
and helped us put together the new www.ideaconference.org website that
we're really proud of, and as members of the IAI, you should be, too.
I'd be remiss if I did not also recognize the efforts of Greg Corrin,
Abby Covert and Dennis Schleicher, who have all been putting in
efforts to help escalate the level of professionalism of the IDEA

I am extremely proud of what we've put together as a teamÑfrom very
detailed and professional collateral materials to provide to our
speakers to the sponsorship prospectus, every item has polish and
shine, and speaks volume to where we're headed.

We've identified an outstanding speaker line-up with some great names
you know and love, and some new ones you may have yet to hear of. All
of them are going to help us better understand aspects of social
design and experience design on September 15-16, 2009, with a pre-
conference workshop hosted by EightShapes on September 14th.

IDEA is an affordable, high-impact conference, and we look forward to
seeing you there! IDEA is happening within a few days of the Toronto
International Film Festival, and it is advised to book hotel rooms as
soon as you can in order to ensure you can have a room for the

See you at IDEA in September!
