17th Annual User Experience Conference


Almost 1000 people attended the conference in 2017. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Volunteering and mentoring opportunities will be available in early 2018. Join our community to stay up to date, or visit to learn more about our organization.

  • “The mentoring sessions were great. I don’t currently work in UX, so the “New to UX/Career Change” mentoring session was a nice jumping-off point for ideas of where to learn more about UX.”

    - 2017 Conference Attendee

  • “The cost was incredibly reasonable and the one day commitment made attending much less of a hassle as I live in Boston and only needed to miss one day of work. The sessions I went to were great.”

    - 2017 Conference Attendee

  • “Thank you for getting so many incredible young-mid career level women as presenters. The content was incredible, and it’s rare that you can learn from so many power women. I want to be friends with all of them!”

    - 2017 Conference Attendee

  • “Thanks again for being such a vital and active UX community and resource. I’m in northeastern CT but really wish I lived closer to Boston so that I could attend more events the UXPA Boston chapter hosts. “

    - 2017 Conference Attendee

  • “I learned a few things, reconnected with some classmates and friends, and gained new contacts in the industry. UXPA Boston is still the best conference deal in UX.”
