Learn. Grow. Connect. Inspire.


Saturday, July 30 (7 PM) – 
Tuesday, August 2 2016 (5 PM)

Pre-conference Workshops – Saturday, July 30


Join visual practitioners from around the world and hear from leaders in the field at the 21st annual IFVP conference. You’ll leave with new ideas, new possibilities, new relationships and new inspiration to shape your practice. Registration is now open.

There’s nothing like being in a room full of people who work visually. Past participants have highlighted the generous spirit and extensive sharing that pervade the event.

  • New to this field? Connect with and learn from the people who are setting the standard as well as from others like you, who are just starting out.
  • More experienced? Find out what innovations and refinements your peers have put into practice.


An Unparalleled Experience

While online sites bring us closer together than ever before, there is no substitute for gathering in-person. “Face-to-face contact makes it easier to get to know people, discuss new ideas in visual work, and explore potential business opportunities. The IFVP conference is the largest event for visual practitioners, but small enough to be personal and inviting,” notes IFVP President Jenny Trautman.

Take a look at just a few highlights below from past conferences and register now to reserve your spot for 2016!

A World-Class Destination

The conference will take place at the beautiful, modern Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Virginia, USA. This hotel is just three Metro stops from the National Mall in Washington, DC, with its museums, monuments and other attractions.

Lonely Planet – the world's largest publisher of travel guides – named Washington, DC its top destination worldwide for 2015: “[With] its hip neighborhoods, incredible eats, venerable performing arts scene and iconic museums, like the Smithsonian Institution,…the US capital is looking more epic than ever."

United We Scribe

More than 20 IFVP members local to the DC area are working with IFVP leadership to plan the conference. Mark Korsak, who developed the conference logo, says:

“’United We Scribe’ represents visual practitioners from across the globe coming together to enhance their work and advance the field. The circle shape of the 2016 logo depicts the unity and connection I’ve enjoyed at past events. The many lines flowing out from the marker reflect diverse people taking the conference experience back into the world in a variety of ways.”

No matter where you’re from, how you apply visual techniques or how long you’ve been a visual practitioner, the 2016 IFVP Conference is an event you won’t want to miss.
