About

It’s the start of brand new Smashing adventure! We’re delighted to invite you to be a part of the very first SmashingConf Barcelona — a friendly, valuable and inspiring community event that will help us all, Web designers and developers, to become better at what we do.

The main focus of the conference is to provide an insight into how we, as designers, solve real-life design problems and which workflows we are using to solve them intelligently. Two full days with practical talks on smart techniques, clever strategies and useful tools. In one of the most incredible cities, with some of the best company the industry has to offer!

We’d be so grateful if you’d help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, your blog and anywhere else you can think of. To make this as easy as possible, we’ve produced some assets! Please let us know if anything is missing. And thanks a lot for your help!

SmashingConf Barcelona 2015

The first ever SmashingConf Barcelona is a three-day event for web designers and developers, to be held in the Palau de la Musica Catalana, an architectural jewel of Catalan Modernism.

We have invited outstanding, inspiring speakers, and are also looking forward to a workshop day full of stimulating, intense expert teaching.

We kick off the event with optional full-day workshops on October 19th, geared towards really elevating your knowledge and experience in your chosen topic.

Tuesday and Wednesday (October 20th and 21st) will then be dedicated to high-quality conference talks by some of the most well-respected experts in today's Web industry, giving you the chance to get up close and personal.

In the evening, our party will give you an opportunity to relax and network after the program of the conference's first day.

SmashingConf Barcelona takes place from October 20th and 21st, 2015, with the workshops being held on the 19th of October. The ticket sales will start on Tuesday, June 9th, with the regular ticket price $499.00—both including Spanish VAT (21%) and all booking fees. Student discounts (25% off) are available upon request as well.


Why the Smashing Conference?

Since 2006, Smashing Magazine has delivered useful and innovative information to Web designers and developers around the world. The design community is full of talented and hard-working folks who come up with brilliant ideas every day. Smashing Magazine provides a platform to share and discuss the work and knowledge of the best designers and developers out there, chase down the latest developments in the industry and stay on top of new techniques, methods, workflows and tricks.

Our conferences move beyond online communication and aim to bring Web designers and developers closer together. We want to provide an inspiring, forward-thinking event where you can connect and network with others on a personal level in a stunning yet friendly environment.

We aim to deliver the same high-quality content that Smashing Magazine delivers, while adding a personal element to create an experience that brings great value to everyone involved. We want you to share how you work, design, code and build the Web today.
