A Web Afternoon is a mini event intended to inspire and educate people who love the web. It’s being put on by the leaders of the Atlanta Web Design Group.
Think TED, but for the web. Both speakers and attendees will be people from a variety of disciplines, but who all share a common passion for making the web a better place.
A Web Afternoon will take place on Saturday, October 22, at the GTRI Conference Center in Atlanta.

Everyone loves free stuff. At A Web Afternoon you’ll bathe in free WiFi and park your car for free. Plus they’ll be giving away a copy of Adobe Creative Suite Web Premium CS5.5 to one lucky attendee.
And since they know you’re thirsty, Coffee, soda, water, and other refreshments from Octane Coffee will be available at all times during the event.
AN AFTER-PARTY, TOO!
Of course it wouldn’t be a good web event without an after-party. We’ve sequestered a great view of the Atlanta skyline at Rooftop 866 in the Renaissance Midtown. You can join for drinks and conversation, but you’ll need your Web Afternoon ticket to do so.
