EuroIA is the leading Information Architecture (IA) and User Experience (UX) conference for Europe.
EuroIA has travelled through Europe over the years: Brussels, Barcelona, Rome, Berlin, Paris, Prague... In 2016 we return to Amsterdam. Learn more about EuroIA.
EuroIA is organized by volunteers all around Europe, with three co-chairs, an active committee and over 35 country ambassadors. Find out who is who at EuroIA.
EuroIA returns to Amsterdam, the city that in 2008 hosted probably the most successful and definitely the most well-attended of all EuroIA conferences.
EuroIA 2016 takes place at The Renaissance Hotel, in the heart of Amsterdam, within walking distance of the Amsterdam central train station and Amsterdam's main highlights.
