Sponsor World IA Day
World IA Day gives sponsors an incredible opportunity: Truly global reach through a network of intimate venues in order to make a real impact with the world’s most sought- after and dedicated information design and user experience professionals.
If you’re a recruiter or HR department, World IA Day is the ultimate platform for creating awareness, and then personally meeting a worldwide network of today’s hardest-to-find candidates.
Are you a brand manager or product owner? You’ll find professionals eager to try and evangelize products that make their demanding jobs even better.
Above all, you’ll be supporting a vast network of people who care deeply about helping other information professionals learn and gain new skills at the local and global level. This is an event which is planned and run entirely by volunteers, whose only reward is that of building a stronger community.
We are willing to work with any brand that has budget, food, or product to support this tradition of global unity and local passion.

For brands with a national or local footprint, Gobi Bear extends Conference access and exhibit space at one location to promote your company or product, a one year IAI group membership, and, of course, our coordinators will advocate for your local brand in person at the podium of the event you sponsor. This is an excellent opportunity for recruiting, book sales, and product demos. Receive listing on local World IA Day event website(s) and mention on local Twitter and Facebook feeds.
Attendees of WIAD are hungry, and they are always looking for a friendly suggestion on where to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner close to their venue on World IA Day. Local coordinators will work with brands who want to provide coffee and snack breaks, if possible, in the local venue. They will connect a local provider with your point person, and provide your team with local access in that area for personal contact and the facilitation of professional relationships that last a lifetime.
For restaurants, we will mention your location at the podium and hand out flyers / coupons to your establishment. In addition, we will send out a Tweet just before mealtime to remind attendees that you support their drive for professional development.
For brands looking for the most economical level of awareness, Sun Bear offers listing on the local World IA Day event website, as well as mentions on local Facebook and Twitter feeds, and a thank-you by local coordinators from the podium of the event.
Many Locations, One Theme
World IA Day 2014 will discuss how we can use IA thinking to make the world a better place. While this may sound idealistic, we think it will inspire speakers to take both the academic and business-centric ideas of our industry to push the boundaries of what we can achieve through IA. Making the case to ourselves, traditional business, and all others, of IA’s ability to make positive change.
