With much of life still virtual, we’re getting better at this!
The third virtual UX Writer Conference hosted on February 9th and 10th welcomed 255 participants from 31 countries, compared to 26 countries last October. In addition to our usual stage presentations and concurrent sessions, we still featured speed networking and end of day open chats. It was great to see attendees spin up their own rooms, as there was one for UX Writers from a Technical Writing background.
Matthew Ellison did a great job hosting Quick Bites, where five presenters each shared a five-minute idea, and Yuval Keshtcher founder of the UX Writing Hub joined Joe Welinske to explore Who We Are and What We Do once again. Sponsors exhibited their products in the Expo area throughout the conference, and were also scheduled to give live presentations.
Our typical Deeper Dives took a bit of a twist though – instead of featuring speakers individually, each of the four deeper dives featured 3 to 4 speakers grouped into themes based on their talks and backgrounds. These moderated open discussions quickly turned into a fireball of new ideas, best practices, latest tools and many years of experience. And it was all recorded!
As always, many thanks to all participants, speakers, exhibitors, hosts, and staff for making this event a success once again! See you all in June ’21!
