Sometimes, to do your best work, you need a change of pace, to get out from behind your desk for a bit and open yourself up to a whole new world of people and ideas. Attending a conference is a great way to do exactly that. It’s a chance to stretch your legs and your mind.

Why You Should Attend An Event Apart:
• Learn from the best
Our speakers aren’t just industry leaders with years of experience and deep insight. They’re also engaging, inspiring thinkers who are passionate about sharing what they’ve learned and helping you level up your skills.
• Learn what’s next
We don’t just present what’s happening right now. We also look ahead to what’s around the corner. Just a few of the topics people heard about on our stage before the rest of the industry knew they were coming: responsive web design, mobile-first practices, content strategy, and CSS Grid.
• Learn from your peers
Our attendees are dedicated professionals with experience and know-how from years in the field. The person you bump into at the opening night reception may have faced and overcome the exact problem you’re facing now, or know someone who has. They’re some of the smartest people you’ll ever meet.

• Immediate takeaways
We emphasize to all our speakers that while inspiration and insights for the future are great, what every talk needs to have is tips and techniques you can take back to your desk right now. And, time and again, they deliver.
