Let's Meet Up Virtually: UX Research Meetup & Event Guide December 2023
Check out this December's virtual talks, meetups, networking events, and conferences around UX Research. 🔍
This guide focuses on pure UX Research events and doesn’t include general UX events on purpose. Also, we focused on events that are primarily held in English. Most of the included meetups are free, but we also added some announced events with a comparatively low fee and specific UX Research conferences.
