Outlier – the global virtual data visualization conference – will be back for its second edition on February 4-5, 2022. The first event was a huge success and we’re excited to offer another one to the community. Don’t miss your chance to become a partner!

What is Outlier?

Outlier is an inclusive, diverse and creative data visualization conference. We run a public call for speakers, which attracts not only well known thought leaders, but also people you may not have heard of who are shaping the field. We host the conference online and provide income-conscious ticketing options, so that everyone anywhere in the world can join. Attendees participate in the design of the conference by suggesting and facilitating their own sessions. They also network and build long-lasting connections. 

Outlier is both a celebration of our community’s talents and a glimpse into future data visualization developments.

Highlights from last year

The first Outlier conference was a huge success. We received so many applications to speak from around the world that we decided to add an entire day to the conference! Nearly 1,000 people attended the event from 60 different countries. We hosted 57 curated speakers, some of which spoke at a conference for the very first time. The community loved the event too and was inspired to network, facilitate their own sessions and present lighting talks. 

What’s new this year

This year, we are working hard to preserve the Outlier vision and spirit. We are working on finalising a rich and diverse speaker lineup. We are also determined to push the boundaries of what a virtual conference can be. This is why we have partnered up with Sparkle Spaces, an outstanding event platform that will allow us to create an interactive experience for our attendees and custom spaces and solutions for our sponsors to meet them.

How to get involved

Support us with a sponsorship! Sponsoring Outlier would highlight your company to some of the best data visualization designers and developers across the globe. You can see all of our sponsorship offerings here, as well as more details about the conference. Last year, we had organisations like Tableau, Netflix, Miami School of Communication, and PolicyViz supporting us.

We hope you join us!
