What is an "un-conference"? 

An un-conference is a loosely structured conference emphasizing the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants. Using an Open Space format, un-conferences allow participants to take control of the conference. Participants propose, create and run sessions themselves. This enables peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and diverse session types and topics and makes for an energizing exchange of ideas, experiences, and solutions.

Sponsorships are available!

Benefits include:

    • complimentary conference registrations
    • featured in our event promotional materials
    • mentioned on DA social channels
    • promotion as a sponsor of the second annual DADay online conference, which is on May 15
