European Information Architecture Summit
Brussels, Belgium, 25-27 September, 2014

We are Europe’s leading conference for information professionals. Over the past decade, we have broken down cultural barriers, initiated dozens of conferences across Europe, and forged careers. We are proud of our accomplishments, but we know we can achieve even more.

This year, we are doing something completely new. As a participant at EuroIA, you will have:

• A choice of one of FOUR different workshops (mornings)
• A fast-paced, single-track conference (afternoons)
• Lightning talks and other events (evenings)

And we will repeat this model for three days in a row! Best of all, you will be able to register for one, two, or the full three days. Naturally, we will provide a discount for people who register for all three days!

Learn. Share. Network. We hope to see you in Brussels for our 10th anniversary summit!
