Upcoming Web Design Events (Jun. 2014 – Dec. 2014)


This year has brought a number of changes in the conference scene around the world. Quite a few established conferences have taken their last bow, and a whole bunch of new conferences have appeared — and I’m not just talking about the Smashing conferences! There’s even a conference for developing applications of the not-yet-released Google Glass.

Many exciting conferences have already featured some of the industry’s most illustrious speakers in the first half of 2014, however, there are quite a few more to come! Take a look at today’s round-up of conferences taking place this year from June onwards, and remember, since most events are a bit light on the design aspect, it may be a good idea to visit those conferences that focus specifically on visual and artistic technologies.

Conferences are about gathering information and knowledge, but also opportunities to get to know other like-minded folks in the web design community. Keep in mind that there’s always a benefit to attending any event, and a strong chance that you’ll be exposed to a large amount of new information, so be prepared to absorb the latest techniques brought to you by distinguished authors and speakers!

Also, I’d like to thank everyone for leaving comments in the previous round-up — they were truly helpful! I admit, I may have missed or forgotten to mention a conference (or two) in today’s round-up, but please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below in the comments section and I’ll be sure to add it on to this list as soon as possible!

The list is quite lengthy, so let’s dive in.

    holy moly. i got halfway, flicked my two fingers, and it just kept scrolling. amazing list, thank you for this.

      Thank you, Fernando! Glad to be of service :-)

      • 3

        Would you mind adding our monthly events to your list too please?


        What is Glug?
        Glug is a series of events for the design and creative community. Our showcase event is held in London but there are now 8 other events around the world.

        Based around a series of talks and informal networking, Glug has become one of the most exciting, credible and well attended creative events around.

        Established in 2007, it’s an eclectic mix of people from all creative walks of life; from advertising, graphic design and the visual arts through to fashion, architecture and the crafts.

        Regularly attended by creatives, students, clients, cultural voyeurs, hipsters and the industry elite. It’s a fine melting pot indeed. Come! Be intoxicated and inspired, you’re also bound to make some new contacts, friends and maybe even find that next job/contract/lover.

        Currently we’re popping up regularly in:

        London, New York City, Birmingham, Beijing, Brighton, Edinburgh, Auckland & Nottingham.

        Great information, thanks for sharing..

    • 6

      Just checkout – you can set your location / interests and you’ll get more relevant results. Not trying to push lanyrd or other services here but sometimes it’s more efficient to get a time based alert on what’s happening, who’s going, etc. In other words the results are very relevant.

      Overall this is a good list, although since it’s all over the map – kinda hard to figure out where to go!

    This is a great list!

    You’re linking to last year’s mLearnCon site, though. :( The 2014 site is here:–mobile-learning-conference–expo–home/

    This is just absurd and only half a year’s worth at that. I think people spend more time at conferences than actually doing any work.

    Great list as usual – you guys always do your homework on these.

    Here’s one more: SassConf (for fans of the CSS preprocessor language) is happening in New York CIty, October 2-4 (

      Weird! I know I had it in my list! I do not know why it didn’t turn up in the final draft. Good catch, Jack. Thanks!

    Do you know if there will be any web design event in january/february in Florida?

    • 40

      There may be. Januray and February are notoriously slow months and I haven’t been able to find anything but rumors about Florida conferences in February. Look out for the next round up sometime in October. I’ll make sure the list is better formated :-)

    Thank you for this great list!

    What would you top 5 be for conferences in the US?

    • 44

      That’s tricky Chris. And very subjective. You have to consider ticket prices, conf size, tracks, subjects, location and so many more factors. And most importantly, I’ve only been to one conference in the US. This said (and without generalising) I prefer smaller conferences, just because from personal experience I would say it is easier to stay focused on the subject when you don’t have to switch tracks all the time. Networking also tends to be a little bit easier (and more productive) in a smaller circle of attendees. However, do not underestimate the flexibility of multi-track gargantuan conferences. You can pick only subjects that interest you and are more likely to discover new speakers.
      I’ll try to have an article about best practices in conferences out soon. It might make the decision process easier.

    There is a hands on conference in Indianapolis, IN Sept 25-27

    Some workshops include Laravel, AngularJS, MEAN Stack, and a gaming track.

    What about An Event Apart?

    Probably one of the best web design conferences out there with Brad Frost, Luke Wroblewski, Jeffrey Zeldman, etc. A couple years ago even Ethan Marcotte was there.

      Fine! I’ll bow to peer pressure and add ALL the Event Apart conferences ;-) DC, Chicago, Austin and San Francisco are in there now. Thanks for noticing that a few were missing!

    I didn’t see it on here, but there’s Weapons of Mass Creation Fest in August in Cleveland.

    Events like this would open a lot of opportunities for web development and web design companies. Attendees and guest can share some ideas and techniques and learn new platforms that they can use for web design and web development. Me and my team from will surely attend the Forum here in the Philippines

    Another one for the list…

    Mobility and Modern Web Conference 2014 (MMWCON)
    at the University of California, Los Angeles
    on September 17 – 19, 2014

    The Mobility & Modern Web Conference is a conference hosted annually at UCLA focused on the latest trends in mobile and the modern web. In its fourth year running, MMWCON is focused this year on mobile and modern web technologies, interoperability, data collection and gamification. It includes two days of sessions ranging from “Responsive Beyond Layouts”, “Mobile & Web Experience: Does Your Site Deliver?” and “Web App Multithreading with Web Workers” to “The Gamification Trend in Education”, “The IMS Architecture for Educational Innovation” and “Dev, Ops and the Modern Team”, followed a third day of hands-on workshops.

    This is an Epic list, judging by the comments there are more to be added. Excellent, definitely be going to the ones in Manchester UK.

  30. 53

    We from Prezi are organizing the design conference Redefine in Budapest btw 2-3 October 2014: I’d really appreciate if you could add it to the list! On the same week, there will be the Design week in Budapest, so that week will be a great time for any designers.

    Anyway, this is a great and super useful listing, thanks!
