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:
13th – 15th of February // Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Awwards Conference positions itself as the “Digital Thinkers Conference for Designers, Developers & Digital Dreamers”. Each year they organize multiple conferences in cities around the world. The 2019 edition in Amsterdam will host various industry leading speakers, like product designers from Google, InVision and Bang & Olufsen. Attendees can also join workshops on different UX topics.
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.
29th – 31st of May // London, UK
UX London is a three-day UX conference that takes place every year. Attendees can expect keynotes from industry leaders and hands-on workshops on various UX topics. Each day of the conference focuses on a different UX domain, so participants can customize their own program.
26th – 28th of June // Barcelona, Spain
The App Design & Development Conference unites designers and developers every year in Barcelona. The conference offers its attendees the latest insights on the design and development of mobile apps through workshops and keynote speeches from industry leaders.
September // Location TBD
EuroIA is an annual event that has been taking place for 14 years in different European cities. Last year’s edition was in Dublin, but details about the 2019 edition are still unknown. EuroIA focusses on both Information Architecture and UX with keynote speeches and workshops from experts.
