World IA Day will be held in 38 locations on Feb 21, 2015!

World Information Architecture Day is Saturday February 21! Where will you be?

We are proud to have 38 cities participating in World IA Day in 2015. Bringing together people across 24 countries, speaking 12 languages.

All of the event production and programs have been organized by teams around the world who stepped up to bring IA education to their local community. They are an impressive group we can't wait for you to meet.

Our theme, Architecting Happiness, is inspiring organizers and speakers to communicate not only the value of practicing information architecture, but also how we can architect meaningful structures that make real people's lives better.

This year will bring more than 4,000 information architects, designers, teachers, students, entrepreneurs, business leaders, technologists and many others interested in learning about and discussing IA together.

It's a time to celebrate bringing the IA community together and fostering links locally and globally. It's a time to inspire, to connect and to shape IA.

We invite you to join us on February 21, 2015 for this fully volunteer-organized and sponsor-funded free event being held simultaneously in 38 locations across the globe. Space is limited at some locations so make sure to reserve your spot today!
