About Us

Co-founded and now run by John Allsopp, Web Directions has for over 15 years brought together leading developers, engineers, visual, IxD, UX and product designers, Art and Creative Directors, product managers indeed everyone involved in producing web and digital products to learn from one another, and the World's leading experts across this vast field.

We spend our lives thinking about what comes next, keeping up with trends in technology, practices and processes, and filtering the hype, to make sure you don't miss trends that matter, and don't waste time on hype that doesn't.

We promise attending one of our events will leave you significantly better versed in the challenges you face day to day, and in solutions for addressing them.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're switching things up a bit for 2020, 2021 (and beyond). We're delivering 6 highly focussed front end development conferences online.

And, our annual extravaganza, Web Directions Summit returns to Sydney in December 2022, bigger and better than ever.
