Why Attend Enterprise Experience?

Enterprise problems are uniquely wicked ones, with overwhelming challenges of scale, complexity, and distributed decision-making, all intertwined with the vagaries of organizational behavior.

The 2019 edition of our conference had a new name—Enterprise Experience—and with it, two new use cases:

1) Helping UX leaders and managers more effectively partner with their peers in product management, CX and other parts of the enterprise that share responsibility for delivering great experiences

2) Helping enterprise UX practitioners up-level their skillsets to become “enterprise-ready”

What’s special about Enterprise Experience

Aside from its unique focus on helping designers and researchers impact enterprises, our content is simply unmatched in quality. We rely heavily on user research to learn about the challenges that you care about. Our program emphasizes those themes over celebrity speakers. We painstakingly curate our speaker roster to ensure diverse perspectives and experiences (learn more about our approach here). And we require our speakers to prepare and practice their presentations months in advance.

What you’ll get when you attend Enterprise Experience

Our great content comes in a variety of formats: keynotes, talks, and our unique Enterprise Storytelling Session, as well as full-day workshops. Don’t worry about taking notes, just enjoy the sessions—we give you access to sketchnotes, tripnotes, and video recordings of the main conference program about a week after the conference wraps up.

We provide you with plenty of other opportunities to learn and have fun—ranging from topic tables, an active Slack channel, and mentoring opportunities to reception and happy hours, and other great activities like dinner groups, karaoke, battle decks, and a walking tour of San Francisco.

Who should attend Enterprise Experience

We’re reaching beyond UX to our “sister” enterprise silos that impact the experience, starting with these siblings: Customer experience (CX), Product management, Engineering, and Data analytics.

That means UX team leaders and mid- and senior-level UX practitioners (including information architects, interaction designers, content strategists, and other user experience professionals) who are charged with researching and designing enterprise software and web sites.

It also means product managers who know that research and design lead to user adoption and give their products a competitive edge. And it means engineers, developers, marketers, and senior decision-makers whose organizations stand to benefit when their employees and customers enjoy better experiences.

“Wonderful event—so much more appropriate and well targeted to the specific needs I face daily than any other UX conference I’ve attended.”
