        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] smashingmagazine.com, 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. https://uxi.uie.com/

    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.

    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.

    Hey guys,

    You missed the biggest digital design conference in Denmark, Design Matters: https://designmatters.io/
    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: theuxconf.com

    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.
