Why attend a Rosenfeld Media conference?

The short answer:

It’s simply the most valuable conference experience, delivering the most relevant and timely UX design content, produced by and for the community of thinkers that drive the industry.

The longer answer:

  • A virtual conference experience on a par with in-person conferences
  • Community-driven: created by, with, and for you
  • Content that’s researched, honed, and perfected over the course of a year by a team of professional curators

The Virtual Experience

Enhanced learning and networking
You can opt to participate in our innovative, industry-first attendee cohorts. Free and facilitated, attendee cohorts offer a deeper level of content engagement and fantastic connections than you’ll find at any other virtual conference.

Designed by industry luminaries
The program is painstakingly designed over the course of the year by a team of professional curators, each well-respected in their field with a pedigree of creating successful design conferences and engaging with the community.

Flexible for any schedule—or budget
Virtual conferencing means you can choose when to go, and accordingly, how much you pay. Attend for one, two, or three days—it’s up to you—and watch the recordings later the same day if you like. That’s all on top of a dramatically lower ticket cost than in-person conferences, not to mention no expense for hotel and travel.

The Community

Informed, engaging and diverse speakers
We go out of our way to identify and attract new voices that represent diverse perspectives and experiences—and avoid the “program by Rolodex” and “pay to play” approaches typical of many other conferences. With the guidance of our curators and a professional presentation coach, our speakers spend months focusing and fine-tuning their sessions.

An active community
The conference’s focus is drawn organically from the engagement that you and your peers have in its corresponding community hosted by Rosenfeld Media. With help and facilitation from our curation team, the conference is essentially a polished snapshot of the community’s ongoing, year-round conversation.

Unparalleled connections
Our conference includes social events where you’ll make friends and connect with companies across the industry. You’ll also make lasting connections by participating in our passionately engaged Slack channels.

The Content

A research-driven program
We didn’t stumble upon our program choices, or make educated guesses. Our program is created through an intense research-driven process that identifies the issues, challenges, and ideas most important to you.

Take-home content for reinforcement
You’ll leave the conference with access to professionally-produced session recordings, sketchnotes, notes and decks, along with a resource list of all media mentioned during the session. So put your notebook down—we’ve got you covered.

Content-rich sponsor sessions
Instead of slapping brand names on collateral, our sponsors deliver relevant information and career-enhancing connections. We put you face-to-face with the companies at the leading edge of UX with innovative sponsorship sessions that often rank as attendee highlights.
