At VizThink, we realize nothing beats bringing together a few hundred visual thinkers, some industry guru's, a stack of paper and plenty of drawing tools all in one place and seeing what happens - that's why we organize two conferences annually where the global community of visual thinkers can gather, share ideas, and inspire each other in person.

A VizThink conference isn't your average ordinary conference either - rather than the typical speaker & death by PowerPoint routine you experience at many conferences, VizThink Facilitators are encouraged to create engaging, interactive sessions where attendees become participants as we collectively create a creative playspace for visual thinkers.

What’s New

This year we’ll be emphasizing the roll of storytelling in visualization. We’ll have all new topics while bringing back some of your favorite facilitators and adding a whole new set as well. We’ve got lots of great new things planned, many based on your feedback. Here are just some of the things planned for next year:

* Adding more networking time
* Repeating popular sessions
* Including “unconference” or “barcamp” activities
* Including content for beginners and experts
* Adding clearly identified tracks
* Adding extensive online networking capabilities (those are available now!)
…and yes, having coffee available during all conference hours

What’s the Same

In addition, we’ll be bringing back some of the most popular features from our previous events:

* A diverse set of visual thinking experts and approaches
* Lots of hands on experiences
* An interesting and diverse group of attendees
* Few lectures and keynotes
