These days there are conferences and conventions dedicated to everything: TV shows, movie genres, pets, and even information architecture. While the information architecture and user experience conferences might not have been getting the recognition that they deserve, they are becoming more and more important for the success of technology experts. They are held all over the world at different times of the year, and some are even available to stream online if you can't make it in person. Those who attend will be able to take part in presentations, Q & A panels, and networking lunches to pick the brains of experts in the field.

You can find all of these events on social media so that you can get more information about any that you may be interested in attending. From there you can buy your ticket and plan for a dramatic change in the way that you approach UX and IA after attending. Whether it is a single day or whole week event, there is sure to be an event that fits your needs, so find what you are looking for and get ready to be inspired by some of the greatest minds in the industry.
