City after city, show after show, An Event Apart is the design and usability conference where ground-breaking techniques break first.

It's where people first heard of Responsive Web Design and learned to approach multi-device development “mobile first.” Where mission-critical techniques are mastered, and new ideas become industry-wide best practices.

An Event Apart brings together twelve of the leading minds in UX, 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 digital 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.
