UX Brighton in other people’s words

We were delighted to be a sponsor at UX Brighton 2012, it was a great opportunity for us to reach our target audience of small businesses and freelancers. We had good traffic to our stand and had some great conversations with attendees and the event itself was really interesting with great speakers.

Freeagent, Gold sponsor of UX Brighton 2012

UX Brighton is one of the premier UX events in Europe. In just one day, you'll get access to some of the most cutting-edge presentations you can imagine.

Well organised, fabulous location, packed with valuable content - go if you can: it's worth the investment.

Jim Kalbach, Author of Designing Web Navigation

To be absolutely frank, if marketers had a proper sense of proportion, they would spend a third of their time learning about usability and customer experience. But if, as is more likely, you only have a day to spare, then there are few better places to study the subject than here.

Rory Sutherland, Vice Chairman, Ogilvy Group

Fantastic conference - a fresh mix of new ideas, provocative speakers, and a highly engaged audience. Well worth the trip.

Alex Wright, Director of UX & Product Research at The New York Times. Author of Glut: Mastering Information Through the Ages

It was a great pleasure to speak at UX Brighton. Some of the smartest, most insightful and entertaining people I've met. And that was just the audience. The speakers were great, too.
