NUX3 - UX & Design Conference
Brought to you by NUX and McrDig
NUX3 is an all-day event in Manchester focussed on how an understanding of people can help you define, design, and build better experiences, on the web and beyond. With international speakers from some of the biggest digital brands, the day will provide a wealth of practical experience you can apply right away.
The event is organised by Northern User Experience (NUX) in conjunction with Manchester Digital. NUX is an informal volunteer-run community for people interested in usability, HCI, information design and all aspects of the user experience in the North of England. Our membership is as diverse as the field itself, with developers, designers, academics, usability specialists, accessibility experts and technical authors.
NUX is a not-for-profit group of people based in Manchester and Leeds. We are doing this because we love our industry. This event would not have been made possible without the help of our very kind and very wonderful sponsors.
If you’d like to sponsor NUX3 please contact drop us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
