Why go to the 2010 conference?

The question is not "should I come?", but "can I afford to miss it?"

Travelling to Europe is cheaper then you think

Do you think travelling Europe is expensive? Think twice!
For example, you can travel from NYC to Munich with a direct flight as from 500$ and from San Francisco to Munich under 1000 $. We are currently in negotiation with Star Alliance and hope to offer a rebate program for flights to Munich. Stay tuned; we will publish the information as soon as it is available.

A wealth of experience

Even more then other years, the conference of 2010 will attract many different nationalities. This is your chance to get in touch with what’s happening globally and get insights from usability practicioners from all over the world.

Cultural Diversity is the theme of the conference. With products and technology becoming more and more global, the importance of internationalization is without any doubt growing. What better place to put theory in practice then attending the first European UPA conference? International user interfaces, cross-cultural design and proven techniques for you to take home!

Great networking… of course

By attending you will expand your network and go home with tons of ideas and best practices from projects worldwide. Learn from the 700 experts that will be joining the conference and get your chance to meet the people behind the usability profession. There are endless opportunities to talk to other people that face the exact same challenges as you do.
