ABOUT IA DAY
For the last decade or so societies all over the world have been producing and consuming information at a rate never encountered before.
The need to deal with the growing amount of information and its complexity has increased the demand for skilled people who can make sense of it all, people who can think abstractly to create environments where information is usable, findable, and coherent across multiple contexts and channels. These people are Information Architects.
In 2012, World IA Day was created to celebrate and bring awareness to the practice of information architecture. Our community believes IA should be a skill-set accessible to more people. Since its inception, World IA Day has provided free education to more than 10K attendees in over 12 languages.
Every February, locations from all over the world come together to teach, learn, and shape the future of information architecture.
Tampa Bay celebrated for the second year in a row on February 20th 2016. We will post our talks here in the next month.
In the meantime, see what happened around the world!

GLOBAL HIGHLIGHTS FROM 2015
Tampa Bay is proud to be a part of a global community of IA and UX professionals who believe in making their community better. Each year a new theme is selected, new cities join, and our community continues to grow.
