UX in the City: Manchester 2021

Due to the on-going pandemic, and to help support our shared goal of reducing infections to as low a level as possible or eliminating them entirely, and after consulting our community, we have decided not to run any in-person conferences in 2021. However, in response to our community’s wishes to gather in some form, we are delighted to announce that UCD Gathering will be returning as a virtual event 18-19 November 2021.

Tickets available now for UCD Gathering...

While you wait....

UX in the City: Manchester is joining with our other community events for our second UCD Gathering. UCD Gathering brings together communities from UX Scotland, UX Cambridge, UX in the City: Manchester and UX in the City: Oxford - for user-centred design and research practitioners from the UK, Europe and beyond.

Our programme will include a mixture of inspiring keynotes, engaging tutorials, live sessions, interactive group sessions, speaker Q&A - plus an all-important hallway track where you can meet and share experiences with fellow practitioners.

We are committed to improving participant and speaker inclusivity and creating a safe space for everyone to enjoy. All participants must adhere to our Code of Conduct.
