“The most focused, useful, practical conference I’ve ever attended.”

Andy Knight YouVersion Designer, LifeChurch.tv

City after city, show after show, An Event Apart is the one web design conference where groundbreaking techniques break first.

An Event Apart is where designers and developers first heard of Responsive Web Design and learned to approach multi-device development “mobile first.

It’s where mission-critical techniques are mastered, and new ideas become industry-wide best practices.

“I learned more in two days than a year in college.”

Rose Chikiar

An Event Apart brings together twelve of the leading minds in web design and development for two days of inspiration and enlightenment, plus an optional “A Day Apart” third day focused on a single, essential topic. Each conference session builds on the one before it; each topic is essential to the practice of modern web design and development.

AEA blends a multi-disciplinary focus with a sharply focused, single-track curriculum. Whether you’re a designer, developer, strategist, or client, you’ll all learn in the same room at the same time, sharing the same revelatory ideas with your peers.

“Most conferences have two or three good sessions. An Event Apart was two days of sheer brilliance.”

David J. Decker

Founded by world CSS authority Eric Meyer and “godfather of web standards” Jeffrey Zeldman, An Event Apart is dedicated to the proposition that the creators of great web experiences deserve a great learning experience. Whether it’s your first web conference or hundredth, you’ve never experienced an event like this. Maybe that’s why every AEA event for the past four years has sold out well in advance.
