Shine on the CanUX stage: 2017 Call for Speakers

May 2, 2017 by Corneliux

Got something to say? Why not submit a short talk to CanUX?

Share the CanUX stage with renowned UX pros!

Are you doing something amazing in the world of experience design? Did you try to do something amazing and end up with a lot of lessons learned? Either way, come share it with us! This is your chance to present on the same stage as the headliners of our CanUX 2017 line-up, in front of 500+ Canadian designers (no pressure, eh?). Whether you’re thinking of showcasing great design ideas that have been brought to reality or projects that went completely off the rails, we’d like to hear them.
No sales pitches, please!

Tell us about…

It could be your earth-shattering idea, plan or concept, how you made it happen, what worked, what didn’t, what you’ve learned or even a demo if you can show us.

Your proposal will be part of a series of short presentations (max. 25 minutes) from any and all experience levels, including first-timers (and if you’re a first-timer, don’t worry, we offer great speaker support too). Basically, if you have something to say, and can tell it passionately, we’d like to hear from you.
Bonus: Accepted speakers pay no conference fees.

Submission deadline: August 15, 2017 at 11:59pm Eastern Time.
Accepted entries will be notified by August 31st.
