Washington, DC will be the location for the first event. Specifically, the event will be held July 9-12, 2013 at the Washington Hilton, a newly-renovated, contemporary, urban retreat near DC’s most sought-after neighborhoods. We think the location is going to make for a fantastic experience, with great space, great food, and great entertainment opportunities. We are especially excited to work with a strong local team that has held the successful User Focus conference in DC for several years.
And because making announcements is so fun, we’ve just got to share the theme for the event – Collaboration. We imagine just about every UX professional can relate to the need for collaboration both within the UX profession and with people outside our profession. Since the 2013 conferences will be heavy collaborations with other events, we thought this theme especially fitting.
While we are working hard to organize an exciting event, we know the real value for everyone is in the program content. We anticipate the official Call for Proposals will go out sometime in November, so start thinking about your submissions now and also consider signing up to review others’ submissions.
Finally, watch this space for more information about both the DC and China conferences! In the meantime, if you have a thought or suggestion or would like to volunteer to help in any way, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
More to come!
