The Best European UX Conferences in 2019

World of Digits / Explore


UX is big. Conferences are being organized around the world to give UX professionals the opportunity to stay up to date, share knowledge and extend their network. But how to choose the right event? Here are our top picks for 2019.

The number of UX conferences can be overwhelming. While most of them offer talks on various UX-related topics, some events focus on a very specific branch, like UX in healthcare or Voice UX.

How do you know which conference offers the best value for money? We made our own selection based on the quality of the speakers, the number of attendees and the event’s history. Our top 5 picks of European UX conferences are:

2. Nielsen Norman UX Conference

30th of March – 5th of April // London, UK

The famous UX research and consulting firm Nielsen Norman Group organizes various UX conferences around the world. The NN/g’s UX Conference is not a typical conference: no keynote speeches from famous tech and design leaders, no exhibition hall, but a week of full-day courses from expert instructors. This event is perfect if you are looking to improve your UX skillset. And for the cherry on top: after attending the classes you can take the exam for the NN/g UX certificate.
