Why attend Designing with AI 2024?

1. Learn to use AI…

…to do UX better

We’ve curated an incredible selection of case studies and demonstrations to show you how UX designers, researchers, and writers are applying AI-based tools and techniques to minimize drudgery and maximize UX’s strategic impact. You’ll get practical take-aways from each session that you can bring back to work.

…in ways that are humane and thoughtful

With great power comes great responsibility. So we’ve convened expert panels to review each day’s demos and case studies. They’ll ask the tough questions that we often miss as we leap ahead with new technologies like AI—and help you develop the critical thinking skills you’ll need to ensure that involving AI in your work doesn’t create bigger problems.


2. Enjoy a fantastic conference attendee experience

We’ve cracked the code with virtual

Rosenfeld has been producing conferences for over a decade—exclusively virtual since the beginning of 2020. From being prepared for any technical glitch you can imagine to offering industrial strength customer support, we’ve got you covered so you can focus on learning and engaging.

Flexible and accessible

Virtual conferencing means you can choose to attend the live sessions and watch the recordings later the same day—or weeks later if you like—from anywhere on Earth. That’s all on top of a dramatically lower ticket cost than in-person conferences, not to mention no expenses for hotel and travel.

Uniquely-enhanced learning and networking

You can opt to participate in our innovative, industry-first facilitated attendee cohorts, at no additional charge (first-come, first-served). You’ll enjoy a deeper level of engagement and make fantastic industry connections that will last long after the conference wraps up.

You’ll have fun too!

From incredibly engaging Slack discussions and Q&A sessions to entertaining networking activities, you’ll end each day with a smile on your face.


3. Benefit from industrial-strength content

We don’t stumble upon our program choices, or hope we make good guesses.

Our program is being created through an intense research-driven process, led by a curation team of senior practitioners, that identifies the issues, challenges, and ideas most important to you.

We’ll prepare you to share out to your team

You’ll leave the conference with access to professionally-produced session recordings, sketchnotes, written notes, decks, and a resource list for each session. So put your notebook down—we’ve got you covered!

The sponsor sessions are amazing too

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 sponsor sessions that are packed with content riches (not sales pitches).


4. Be with your peers

Engaging, diverse, and highly-prepared speakers

No “programming by Rolodex” or “pay-to-play”! We go out of our way to identify and attract new voices that represent diverse perspectives and experiences. Our speakers then spend months preparing collaboratively and iteratively with guidance from our curators and a professional presentation coach.

You made this!

We’re UX people (just like you)—and we’ve been researching what people in the community (just like you) want from the program over the course of the past year. So chances are you’ve already participated in developing the program in some way!

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.
