Over the course of the evening we hope to gain insight and feedback into the first day presentations from UXLondon and the second and third day workshops from the perspective of delegates, presenters, people who ran workshops and organisers. We will also endeavour to run a couple of ‘mini’ workshops based on UXLondon workshops.

The event is open to all members of London IA and there will be no charge.

There will be refreshments and a background of music from Martin Belam and I hope Jason Mesut and myself.

Below is the evening’s poster and supporting image:
