15 years of UX in India

UXINDIA is proud to announce its 15th edition. We are now open for speaker proposals and looking forward to your content to be a key element of delivering a great experience to our audience. UXINDIA the biggest conference on design in India has been pioneering design for over 15 years. The event includes enthralling talks, unique workshops, and thought-provoking interactions lead by passionate thinkers and makers.

UXINDIA 2019 continues to explore the theme “Human by Design

With the evolution of tech and business, the influence of design has evolved too. We have come a long way from designing product interfaces for feedback and response, to creating user and customer experiences. Going beyond UX/UI, the role of design becomes paramount than ever in designing experiences for humans that reflect a sense of responsibility and that instill trust and confidence in the emerging tech.

Tech is now ready to tackle the mundane and will eventually be able to handle the sophisticated too thereby enhancing our abilities to take up more challenging and ambitious tasks of tomorrow. So should our design be human-friendly or tech-friendly? What does it take to design experiences that bring the very essence of human to our interactions with tech? How do we design for such a transition?

Our audienceA mix of highly experienced, early to mid and senior to students

15 years is quite a long journey during which we have seen our industry transform from a nice-to-have skill to an industry transformative practice. UXINDIA 2018 had 700 people attend our conference last year. A good 1/3rd of them are loyal UXINDIA audience, now in senior roles looking to learn from your thought leadership. We get a tonne of interest every year from the graduating students and young designers in the early to mid experience range which forms the remaining 2/3rd. With their huge appetite for learning and hunger for growth, they are constantly looking for inspiration material that boosts their design IQ and that helps them learn new skills through workshops.
