Description

You've read their books. Now you're ready for more.

Come and join the conversation. Meet your favorite Web design authors live and in person at the Voices That Matter: Web Design Conference.

As a Web designer, you understand the challenges you face. Gone are the days when a good grasp of HTML and some straightforward usability knowledge would get the job done. Now your clients want to know that you're comfortable with CSS, XML, Ajax, Web standards, interaction design, information architecture, interface design, search engine optimization, Flash, Flex, JavaScript, mobile design, mash-ups and much more.

This not-to-be-missed conference brings you face to face with the experts whose books have shaped your career. Get your most difficult questions answered and gain insights from the brightest thinkers and practitioners in the Web industry during four days of entertaining, informative, and inspiring sessions and conversations.

Two tracks (one inspirational, one practical) mean there's always a session for you: whether you're looking for the up-in-the-clouds ideas that'll transform your work when the conference is over or the down-to-earth techniques that'll make your job easier every day.

What Makes This Conference Unique?

World Class Speakers
Our lineup of high-profile industry experts are experienced Web professionals, but they're also bestselling New Riders' authors and teachers skilled in presenting information to live audiences.

Community Building

You are part of an ongoing conversation before—and after—the event.

Technology for Designers
The Voices That Matter: Web Design Conference targets an audience of designers first, developers second. That means no arcane technical acronyms, but lots and lots of inspirational visuals. Our focus is on the design options presented by technology and the impact of those choices on design decisions.

Who Will Be There?

Each session is designed to address the needs and pain points of Web designers and creative professionals, including those who manage or work with Web designers.

Our audience represents the full spectrum of the design world, from freelancer to studio creatives and corporate designers, with a wide variety of experiences and skills.
