THRIVE Sponsors World Information Architecture Day 2017
World IA Day is about bringing the information architecture community together. We’re fostering links within local communities and on a global scale. We’re sharing information, ideas, and research. And we’re doing it through unconventional, exciting, and engaging IA events. In 2017, we have 63 participating locations, a growth of more than 400% from our inaugural event in 2012. Our audience spans 28 countries across 6 continents. Attendees include information architects, user experience designers, scholars, students, content strategists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, developers and others interested in learning and discussing IA.

What is World Information Architecture Day?
Our world is full of information. Whether we are using the latest mobile app, watching the local news or navigating our way through the post office or grocery store, information is all around us. Because of the ubiquitous nature of information, we see information architecture is not just practiced by specialists. Instead information is architected by people holding all sorts of titles, coming from all walks of life.
World Information Architecture Day 2017 is a one-day annual celebration of this phenomenon. Hosted in dozens of locations across the world by local organizers on February 18th, we focus on telling stories of information being architected by everyone from teachers to business owners; technologists to artists; designers to product managers.
With representation from all over the world, we believe that the power of similarity and the beauty of difference between stories will inspire those who work in information architecture, as well as those who may be new to it. We aim to teach, share, and have fun — all through the lens of Information Architecture (IA).
