Justifying Your Time at #UXSS

Pre-summit hands-on workshops

Take advantage of these three-hour hands-on sessions with smaller groups of attendees to deep dive into specific topics. Workshop facilitators are here to answer all your burning questions.

Pick the brains of other UX experts

Our lively events are a great chance to network and gain a fresh perspective on what’s happening in the UX design industry. We chose an intimate venue that will allow you to get to know other attendees - you won’t get lost in the crowd of a massive expo hall.

Educational case studies

Our speakers are eager to share their insights with you - and not just about their successes. We’ll go through the tough stuff too and address the most challenging elements of UX and design strategy.

Customize your summit experience

We’ve created three event themes so that you can attend the talks that are most relevant to you.

Learn about where UX is headed

Stay ahead of the curve by gaining insights into the future of UX, and how your team can capitalize on these trends.
