Dear UXPA Members and all fellow UXers,
What a crazy, stressful time 2020 has been. We, as the Board of Directors for UXPA International just hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy as best you can.
As an organization, UXPA International has always been known for its annual conference. It’s a fantastic event with amazing content, courses, and networking opportunities. We pride ourselves in offering a great program and fun opportunities to connect with other UX Professionals. However, after much deliberation and tough discussions, the UXPA International Board of Directors has made the difficult decision that our Annual 2020 conference be postponed until August 2021 (same location, same hotel in Baltimore). We will share more details at a later date.
What are we doing in 2020?
Hopefully you have noticed we have increased the number of free webinars we are offering. We want to help you learn and expand your knowledge while you are at home, so we are working hard to bring you more content, more often. We will be adding more online short courses as well.
In addition, many of our UXPA local chapters around the world have moved their events online, and we’ve collated a list of upcoming chapter events here. We also have a list of other UX resources you might like here. We are constantly searching for more to share.
Finally, we are planning to have our first ever (small) 2020 online conference at the end of summer. The Conference Chairs are busy working on the program and it will be released in the next few weeks. Additionally, the poster session from this year’s in person program will be moving online for all to enjoy. Please stay tuned as we start to release our dates and registration information.
Thank you so much for your support, your patience, and of course your love of all things UX.
UXPA International President
