UX Research conference guide for 2021
Whether you’re looking to level up your research skills, get inspired by experts in the field or make new friends in research - conferences a great way to do all of it. This guide lists the user research conferences taking place in 2021. Early bird tickets with reduced prices are available for many events already.
2020 was a difficult year for probably everyone and definitely for conference organizers. And it’s still uncertain how events in 2021 will look like. What we know is that most major conferences take place early in the year and all of them are fully virtual. We will see whether in-person conferences are possible towards the second half of 2021.
This guide focuses on pure UX research conferences and doesn’t include general UX conferences on purpose. Did we miss one? Let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it.
Since most conferences are virtual and allow participation from anywhere in the world, we added information about when the main talks are happening in different time zones. Here’s what the emojis mean:
QRCA Annual Conference
UX Insight Festival
GamesUR Summit North America
Radical Research Summit
