It took a year to plan and just like that, it was over.
From the amazing keynotes, to the courses and conference sessions, there was no shortage of great content and knowledgeable presenters. Networking took shape in many forms – from our receptions, to offsite excursions, to meet and greets in the hotel lounges. Whether it was catching up with old colleagues, or meeting new friends – the week was full of energy and enthusiasm for all things UX.
For many attendees, you may not realize what lies behind the curtain. Spoiler alert - it’s not a wizard – (although with some of the volunteers we had on-site, I wonder if maybe they did have magical powers) instead it took almost 100 volunteers to make the 2017 conference what it was. Working before, during, and even after – the goal was to make this conference as enjoyable and worthwhile as possible. We hope we succeeded and strive to do even better next year.
For those of you who attended the UXPA 2017 International Conference in Toronto: thank you and we hope you had a wonderful time. For those of you who did not attend, we hope you'll join us next year in Puerto Rico!
Hope to see you next year!
