UX Fest was a huge success! In our amazing new office space, we hosted a full day UX conference that centered around user experience. We had about 30 local and national experts come to our offices to speak to our 240+ guests.
The talks were designed to bridge the gaps across UX disciplines. Attendees witnessed some seriously inspiring and innovative lessons in design and behavior, development and optimization, and business and branding. Even though it was the first time we’ve hosted such an event, it was a massive success. The best part was being able to spend an entire day studying and developing our concept of great user experience alongside other creative and business professionals in the UX community.
We look forward to UX Fest 2014, which will remain an exclusive and intimate event so we can focus more on delivering an excellent event experience to our attendees. We’ve already got our hands on some of the professional photos from UX Fest, which you can check out in the gallery below, and we’ve got candids from our Robin integrated iPad photos on our Facebook page if you’d like to relive the memories.
An enormous thank you to all our presenters who made the event what it was, and attendees for joining us and dedicating a full day to the art of user experience
