The Path Ahead Lovely San Diego

Sponsor The Summit

Make your company part of the conversation as global leaders in information architecture, user experience, and web design convene this March in San Diego, California to explore The Path Ahead.

For 15 years, IA Summit Delegates and speakers have been among the most highly connected and respected names in the field. While the event itself may last only a few days, the Summit creates an intellectual landmark of year-round interest and conversation.

Community + Quality

A community-organized and volunteer-run event, the IA Summit has an authenticity and energy few conferences can match.

Great experiences are at the heart of our industry, a passion we carry into relationships with sponsors. You’ll enjoy professional coordination through the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T). They are a large, membership-based organization that has produced conferences and educational events around the world, including all 15 years of the IA Summit.

Vanessa Foss with ASIS&T is our 2014 sponsorship coordinator. Contact Vanessa directly at vfoss@asis.org or by calling 301-495-0900 to discuss your needs.
