Lotame Ignite Americas Conference takes place on Thursday, May 17th in New York City at the beautiful and iconic High Line…
Data visualization is a rising trend across many disciplines — journalism, communications, and web. In an age of high-speed living, “Big Data” and info overload, visualized information has incredible potential to help us quickly understand, navigate and find meaning in an increasingly complex world.
Lotame is pleased to announce that David McCandless of Information is Beautiful, London-based author, data-journalist and information designer, will be the closing guest keynote speaker at this year’s Lotame Ignite Americas Conference taking place on Thursday, October 24th at TheTimesCenter in New York where we’ll be joined by 150 publishers, marketers, and agencies.
David is a leading-practitioner in this emerging field, working across print, advertising, TV and web. His popular blog and best-selling books Information Is Beautiful (2009) and Knowledge is Beautiful (2014), are dedicated to visualizing knowledge, information and data. He has worked with publications and companies around the world to help them unfold and visualize stories from their data. They include Google, GE, the Wellcome Trust, The Guardian, Wired, and the UN.
David’s guest keynote presentation, Data is Beautiful, will uncover his passion for visualization as a merging of design, information, numbers and story. In this multi-coloured, hyper-visual presentation, he will unveil some of the interesting, unexpected and sometimes magical things that happen when you start to visualize data, knowledge and ideas.
All Ignite attendees will receive a complimentary copy of David’s book, Knowledge is Beautiful, on-site. Directly following his keynote, David will be available during the hour-long cocktail reception for a book signing! Learn more by registering today for Lotame Ignite Americas Conference.
