What to expect at UX Brighton

Research belongs at the heart of UX. It guides our work and shapes our decisions. That’s why Advancing Research is the theme of UX Brighton 2018.

It’s time to take a look at the place of research within the UX landscape - time to further our knowledge of tools and methods, and time to extend our research skills to embrace new technologies.

Join us for the day. Gather skills and insights that will bring solid benefits for you, your colleagues and your clients.

I just want to say what a truly good and valuable thing UX Brighton is. I always come away inspired. Thanks again.

Emma Boulton

Emma is a passionate advocate for the role of research within design. Her 18 years of experience have made her a trusted and entertaining voice on all aspects of UX research. Emma’s solid background of work at the BBC, at Monotype, and in other agency and client-side roles, gives her valuable, insightful perspectives that she loves to share.

Emma firmly believes in the need for high quality research, integrated within every aspect of the processes we create as teams of designers and other professionals.

Katy Arnold

As head of user research at the Home Office, Katy Arnold has a major role in shaping important digital services used by millions of people. She is committed to raising standards of user research, and is building a community of skilled practitioners within the UK Government.

Katy fervently champions the building of digital inclusion into our society’s online landscape. She shares her knowledge and experience at events around Europe.

Kate Towsey

Kate believes that in order for research to be truly valuable, it must be done thoroughly, professionally, and securely. She creates labs, panels and archives that are carefully designed to meet demanding specifications, sometimes assembled with minimal resources, but never compromising quality.

Working freelance, Kate refuses to fit neatly within job titles. Instead, she takes an entrepreneurial approach to her work with government, agencies, universities, broadcasters and others. The BBC and Co-Op are the current beneficiaries of Kate’s exacting approach.

Brighton Dome is part of the historical and beautiful Pavilion estate and it is a Grade 1 listed building. This year we're in the concert hall, the riding stable for the Prince Regent and his 44 horses.

Sponsors


Sponsor UX Brighton

Unlike most other conferences, we gather together a mix of academic and industry experts and curate our talks around a single theme.

This year’s theme is Advancing Research. We’ll be taking a deep dive into research – looking beyond traditional methods to tackle everything from how research can inform strategy to building research teams. From designing surveys that don’t suck to researching for new technologies.

Our speakers are individually selected from industry and academia; we make a particular effort to bring new, relevant speakers to our audiences and we have been responsible for bringing a number of now well-known speakers on to the conference circuit.

If you're interested in sponsoring, please email emmeline@uxbrighton.org.uk or DM @uxbri (DMs are open).


A boutique team

UX Brighton is carefully curated by Danny Hope, a UX consultant with two decades of experience. Conference Producer Emmeline Caines-Gooby ensures the conference runs like a smoothly oiled machine. They've been working together since 2011. Danny and Emm are backed up by a team of volunteers who all work to ensure the conference is a great day for all our attendees, speakers and sponsors.

Unique venue

The Brighton Dome is part of the historical and beautiful Pavilion estate, home to Prince George, the Prince Regent. Originally his riding school and stables, the Concert Hall is a stunning 1200 seated theatre. We've been holding our conference here since 2011 and love its unique brand of Brighton quirkiness.

The spacious, double-height Foyer Bar provides an excellent space for our sponsors. It's also where our delegates congregate for refreshments, so they won't miss you!

Why sponsor us?

Brand visibility, networking, hiring quality people, brand association.

Our delegates want to engage with companies that support us. They are looking for new jobs, resources and tools. The UX community share their knowledge widely. So our supporters will reap the benefits long after the conference ends.

Custom sponsorship deal

As you might expect, we're a creative bunch, so encourage our sponsors to think beyond the exhibition stand.

If you don't see what you want here, contact us to discuss further - we will happily customise a package to suit your needs.
