Event Sponsorship

Toward the goal of assisting in the growth of information architecture (IA) globally, the Information Architecture Institute has developed the Asilomar Events Sponsorship Program. This program will annually sponsor up to two regional and national events dedicated to information architecture.

Scope of Event

  • The event should be regional in coverage, rather then pertaining to a single community. (In other words, this event shouldn't serve the community in a single city or town; instead it should target attendees from a broader area, either a region or a country.)
  • The event should be focused on information architecture as defined by the Institute.


  • The Institute will grant up to US$1,000 per event, and will sponsor up to two events in each of its fiscal years.
  • Event organizers must present a budget that shows how the money will be spent, as well as financial statements that document and verify expenses.
  • The Institute is open to discussing financial arrangements that present an alternative to the simple granting of funds (e.g., sharing expenses and sharing revenue).

Benefits to Event Organizer

  • The Information Architecture Institute's sponsorship includes up to US$1,000 in supporting funds.
  • The Institute will publicize the event to its members and the public through its website. IAI logos are available. Please refer to our IAI Logo Usage Guidelines below.
  • The Institute will assist the event organizer as much as possible with finding speakers through its members' contacts.
  • The Institute may be able to provide additional infrastructure support to event organizers, such as space on a wiki.

Basic Sponsorship Requirements

  • The event organizer will list the Information Architecture Institute as a sponsor in its online and printed marketing and advertising materials.
  • The Institute's marketing materials will be made available to event attendees.
  • The Institute's members will receive a discount for attending the event. The discount amount will be jointly determined by the event sponsor and the Institute.
  • An Institute member must be present at each event to ensure that the Institute is represented and the Institute's materials are made available.

Application Process
