35 Inspiring Design and Development Related Event Websites

We decided to put together a somewhat different list of inspiring websites. We’re featuring upcoming design, artistic and development related events and conferences websites. The idea is not only to show you ‘beautiful and well designed’ websites but also conferences, talks and places where you can go to get inspiration and to meet people. From UX workshops to Arts Festival and New Adventures in Web Design, you will see inspiring websites and even more inspiring events to renew your ideas and networking. Hope you enjoy.

    Very inspiring, thanks! Web related events have always awesome websites, also becaouse they have a highly educated target from a web design point of view. We just launched a website for a scientific international conference, it has a much more “classic” style for a very very different audience, http://www.ebea2011.org if you’d like to have a look
