Upcoming Web Design Conferences (January–June 2017)

2017 will bring about new conferences as well as play host to your favorite conferences from the past years. This year, the IoT may prove to be as prominent as wearables, while AI could join the ranks of the budding topic — virtual reality.

Conferences are about gathering information and knowledge, but are also opportunities to meet and learn from other like-minded folks in the web design community. Keep in mind that there are always benefits to attending any event. Plus, you’ll be exposed to a large amount of new information, so be prepared to absorb the latest techniques brought to you by distinguished authors and speakers!

    You guys forgot ng-conf, the angular conference. They are sold out, but they have a waiting list and I can confirm I got a ticket after joining the waiting list.

      Updated that, thanks for mentioning it!

        Do you update this page? We do the Axure workshops and there are more than what’s listed here. Is there someone I can contact about providing more info (plus staying in touch for our late 2017 and future workshops)? Thanks, Debbie from Ptype

          Feel free to contact me via markus.seyfferth [at], but honestly, we don’t list any workshops here — not even our own workshops.

          This is a conference-only list and for the sake of usability, we would like to keep it that way. Cheers! :-)

    There’s a pretty great event coming up in May that might be worth adding to this list. It’s all about moving beyond inspiration and immersing yourself in master-grade workshops on groundbreaking interaction design skills.

    Hi. Thanks for listing our Axure prototyping workshops. We actually hold many each year, not just Feb in Vegas. How can I submit all of these so that they’re all on this page and not just one that’s about to pass? Thanks.

  4. 7

    Thanks for compiling this list! Now it’s time to convince my boss I need to go to more than one.

    Also, you have a couple of Chicago conferences listed as Chicago, Michigan, rather than Chicago, Illinois.

    @Jan – Thank you for listing our conference UX+DEV SUMMIT event! Possible to update our banner? LMK

  6. 10

    You should add EmbraceUX to your list – a Canadian UX conference in it’s 3rd year. Both previous years have been great!

    Edit: DrupalCon Baltimore 2017 – it’s in MD (Maryland), not MA (Massachusetts).

    FYSA – There are 65 cities across 29 countries who are hosting World Information Architecture Day on February 18, 2017 this year. The location list is located at, which links to other city location web pages for agendas and speakers.

    Copenhagen has a pretty awesome UX event coming up on March 7-8 too:

    Thanks for a great article. It would be great if you add the App Design & Development Conference in Barcelona that’s happening on 22.-23. June 2017 to the list as well.

    A lot of event happening, but don’t have enough time to join.
    My favorite conferences are:
    – Digital Thinkers Conf
    – Developer Week

    Hey guys,

    You missed the biggest digital design conference in Denmark, Design Matters:
    It is in Copenhagen — September 27–28 2017, and so far Instagram, Uber, Spotify, IBM Design and Zendesk are invited to talk about design. The theme is always ‘New movements in Digital design’, but this year is focuses on ‘Failing’, ‘Invisible UI’ and ‘Designing for Diversity (Accessibility).
    At Design Matters they bring together design practitioners from around the world for 2 days of design talks, workshops, discussions and socializing in Copenhagen.
    Meet designers from the most exciting companies, who are working with apps, websites and physical products. They will share their firsthand experiences and personal stories about working with designing experiences that connects, engages and inspires the users. Also, they will enlighten everybody on how they are changing the way users and digital products interact.

    Hi Jan, School of UX is organising The UX Conference in London on June 13th for designers and developers to understand UX design and each other better:

    It’s going to be a really interesting day full of practical UX design talks & hands-on workshops: from creating chatbots, designing a style guide and running card sorting to managing UX teams, creating experience maps and rapid prototyping.

    All suitable for junior and mid-weight designers & developers.

    I’m sure it will be a great addition to your list.
