Leaders, members and enthusiasts from the user experience and related fields are invited to join the inaugural FutureYouX event hosted and sponsored in partnership with MakeReign, an interface design agency.
The event is aimed at fostering collaboration and community in the industry, bringing people together to have conversations and discussions on various topics related to user experience design – focusing on what’s now and next in UX.
Speaking on the collaboration, partnerships director at MakeReign, Luke Engel said, “We are excited to be involved in this first event; we want to elevate user experience design through these important conversations from people in the industry”.
He continued, “Consensus is growing that design deserves a seat at the C-Suite level as it has a direct impact on shaping how the brands of the future look and behave, and continues to improve the bottom line of the companies that provide that seat. That’s what interests me most about discussing not only what is now, but what is next for the industry.”
Each event will feature industry experts sharing knowledge, learnings and insights from what’s happening now, as well as discussing what the future holds for UX design and the industry as a whole.
The first three expert speakers have been announced as:
Topics covered will include:
- The business value of design
- The role of user research in design
- Design career paths: a toolkit
The event is free, but space is limited to 80 attendees. Interested participants can apply to attend here. Bookings close on 31 October.
Doors open at: 6pm
Speakers on at: 6.30pm
Free drinks, sponsored by Beau Constantia, will be available along with a cash bar. Join the speakers and rest of the attendees afterwards to network, share ideas and meet some new faces.
