Highlights from past conferences

Every conference of ours has a theme. Back in September 2018 at the iconic Design Museum in London we explored collaboration between UX designers and researchers. See photos on Flickr and watch some talks on YouTube.

Whilst it’s popular to talk about the latest trends, our conferences have been focusing on what we think is the most challenging part of design – communication between each other: internal company politics, presenting value of design and speaking the same language with different stakeholders.

February 2019 theme – Designers & Marketing

Join us and our speakers from LEGO, Canonical, Which?, Ocado, Monzo, Automattic, Condé Nast, Booking, Virgin Atlantic and others to explore how designers can help businesses grow through UX & marketing; surely no matter how great our UX research & design can be – our products and services won't sell on their own?

09:15–10:00 Registration & Coffee
12:00–13:00 Lunch
15:30–16:10 Coffee Break

Please note, the event will be recorded on video. If you can't make it in person – feel free to order professional video recording as a ticket option.
