October
10–12, 2019

Grand Rapids, MI

For Midwest UX 2019, we are reframing our reality: our job, our community, our capabilities, and the future of UX. Because when we see things from another perspective—or another’s perspective—we unlock a different part of our mind.

Join us in Grand Rapids this October. Learn from and be inspired by industry thought leaders through workshops, local excursions, and provoking lectures. Connect with other professionals, take in new perspectives, and finish each day by unwinding at our after-parties.

Get your ticket and grab a pint with us in Beer City, USA!
