In a tough economy, it pays to be at the top of your game. You simply can't afford to rely on last year's technology and techniques. At the Voices That Matter: Web Design Conference to be held in San Francisco, California, in April, you can sharpen your skills and strengthen your resume with new techniques and strategies from the most respected professionals in the Web design industry.

At the Voices That Matter: Web Design Conference, the leading authors and practitioners in the Web design community will inspire, entertain, and train you in all the things you know you've been needing to learn—and even a few you didn't—from CSS, Ajax, and Web standards, to SEO, Web usability, interface design and more.

Thanks to the conference's intimate setting, you'll meet your favorite Web design authors face to face, and you'll get to talk with the people whose books have shaped your career. Get your most difficult questions answered and gain insights from the brightest thinkers and practitioners in the Web industry during three days of entertaining, informative, and inspiring sessions and conversations.

Two tracks each day mean there's always a session for you: whether you're looking for off-beat ideas that you'll be eager to try when you get back to work or down-to-earth techniques that'll make that your job easier every day.

World Class Speakers Sharing Their Expertise
Our speakers are leading industry experts and experienced Web professionals, but they're also authors and teachers skilled in presenting information to live audiences.

Community Building and Networking throughout the Conference

Technology for Designers
Designers come first at this conference. That means no arcane technical acronyms, but lots and lots of inspirational visuals. We'll help you make sense of the technology and use it to make informed design decisions that will change how you work.

Who Will Be There?
Each session is designed to address the needs and pain points of Web designers and creative professionals, including those who manage or work with Web designers.

The Voices That Matter audience represents the full spectrum of the design world, from freelancer to studio creatives and corporate designers, with a wide variety of experiences and skills.
