Viva la Puerto Rico!

It’s hard to believe that our UXPA 2018 International Conference is less than 5 months away!! It seems like just yesterday we were reviewing all the amazing submissions for the program.

Many of you have been curious if we were still going to hold the conference in Puerto Rico. The answer is still a very solid YES! In fact, our Board was fortunate enough to hold our latest planning meeting at the conference hotel, and all I can say is WOW. The hotel is gorgeous! Forest views? Check. Ocean Views? Check. Pools equipped with the mandatory pool bars – check. The interior has been renovated along with several restaurants, with food options for even the pickiest eaters. And did I mention there is a casino?

The ride from the airport gives a glance into what Puerto Rico has gone through since being hit with Maria, and the recovery process is still in swing. However, the drive is an easy one, and well worth it. Tourism is welcome, and frankly needed, to help with the healing process. We are so excited to be able to be part of that!

The program for 2018 is amazing, if you have not looked, you should! Combine our amazing presenters with networking fun, food and sun, and it’s something that should not be missed.

My co-chair this year (the wonderful Daphne Puerto) and I are working daily - along with our Board, Conference Committee and other talented volunteers - to make this event memorable. We hope you can join us.

The UXPA International Conference is for every working professional and student that touches UX in some way, whether it’s via design, development, product management or research. We would love to see everyone this June in Puerto Rico for the 2018 conference, so don’t forget to register here.
