A comprehensive list for UX conferences, UX events and design conferences for designers, researchers, product owners, developers or anyone interested in the UIUX and design industry who are looking to attend one in 2020.

Haven’t decided on which UX events or design conferences to attend in 2020? Read through the list below. Only conferences/ events with CONFIRMED dates and venues are included in this list.

Two additional criteria have been added to help you with your decision making:

  • Annually recurring or not: You know that the events are somehow trustworthy and reliable when they have been happening for the past years.
  • Sponsor and partners: The more, the bigger, the better.

 

For more events and conferences, browse the events directory here. If there’s any missing event, please submit the events here. The list is still being continually updated.

 

Notice: Due to COVID-19, some of the events have been made virtual, postponed, rescheduled, or cancelled. We are actively updating the list and we are adding the following labels to the events with updates:

  • Postponed – Event is no longer held on the original date, but a new date is to be confirmed. The date of the event displayed is tentative.
  • Rescheduled – Event is no longer held on the original date, but a new date has already been confirmed. The date of the event displayed is the new date.
  • Cancelled – Event is no longer held on the original date and there will be no replacement. The date of the event displayed is the original date.
