Engagement is the key to the success of a project. But as a UX professional, do you know how to establish a good level of engagement from your target audience - or even your own team? How about to maintain and increase the level of engagement? On this year's World Usability Day, you will learn how your fellow UX professionals practice the art of Engagement.   

Join Bloomberg, the NYC UXPA, the IxDA of New York City, and AppNexus for World Usability Day 2014 on Thursday, November 13th. We have assembled an all-star team of UX rock stars to share their perspectives on engagement models in user experience. Each will deliver a brief presentation on their area of expertise and participate in a panel Q&A consisting of questions from the audience and from our moderator. The evening will be a night of education, debate, reflection and inspiration.

All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we will do our best to manage transfers and late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.

Regular registration closes at the EOD the day before the event -or- whenever seating capacity is reached, whichever occurs first.

Tickets are transferable up to 11AM the day of the event by sending a request to Transferees will please bring the transferer's registration confirmation in printed or digital form as backup. Transfer requests received after 11AM may not be received or processed.

If the event sells out early, a Wait List may be set up and managed by us on a discretionary basis. We will do our best to keep Wait-Listers informed about the status of available seating, but Wait Listers who haven't heard anything by noon the day of the event can assume there has been no change in status.
