An Event Apart Chicago 2019
August 26 - August 28
Why You Should Attend An Event Apart?
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.
An Event Apart (AEA) attendees are UX professionals, developers, and designers—including interaction designers, graphic designers, and UI designers. Project managers, writer/editors, marketers, strategists, and even site owners and clients attend. This wide spectrum of roles speaks to the uniquely comprehensive and multi-disciplinary nature of this single-track event.
AEA attendees, like other conference attendees, want to improve job skills and make new community and business connections in an intense and fun environment. But unlike the typical conference goer, AEA attendees have that gleam in their eye that comes from the belief that through advocacy and hard work, they can make a meaningful difference.
Three days of design, code, and content!
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.
Learn more about who attends AEA.
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.
Share what you learn — we’ll send you off with copies of all the speaker slides, so you can use the same examples when you present what you learned to the rest of your team. Between that, the page of resources we collect from speakers for each event, the Slack team we set up for each event, and our free video library of talks from past years, you’ll be able to keep the learning going long after the conference glow has faded.
Set yourself apart.
