        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! :-)

    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.

    Hi! I just want to suggest an addition:

    The Nordic.design (http://nordic.design) conference in Stockholm on September 6th. We’ve been organizing Nordic.js (http://nordicjs.com) for three years and this is the first year for Nordic.design (Vitaly spoke at Nordic.js last year btw).

    It’s one day, single-track and 800 attendees. The focus is digital product design and we’ll cover everything from UX, UI, design process, workflows, tools, games, bots and AI. We got speakers like Tim Van Damme (Abstract, Dropbox, Instagram, Gowalla), Caroline Sinders (BuzzFeed) and Tobias Ahlin (Minecraft).

    Quick question: how do you confirm that these conferences are legit?

    The Creativity Workshop linked above (http://www.creativityworkshop.com/) gives little – if any – detail about what the workshop involves. When all the info is about the travel and destination it generally turns out to be a fake conference.

    In other words, buyers beware.
