24 Hours of UX returns on May 3rd

2023 - The futures of UX

Will the future shape UX? Or will UX shape the future? On May 3rd 2023 we will explore the probable, the plausible, and the possible futures of our profession. Call for proposals by UX communities opens mid-January.

2023 - the futures of UX
In 2023, our theme is The Futures of UX. Plural, because we are still shaping our future, so it may end up one way, or the other. What signals do we see today of futures to come? What drivers propel these signals? What scenarios may they bring to life in 5, 10… or 24 years? We are not pawns to futures to come, but rather their masters. So let us imagine these futures together, and decide which ones we want to keep – and which ones we want to avoid.

Why attend?

Dive deep

There are many articles out there about the future of UX – but they only scratch the surface our 24-hour scope allows our speakers to explore many aspects, and explore these aspects in depth. SO you will come away with more than just a headline to remember.

Stay relevant

Long-term plans often get overshadowed by everyday deliverables. Leave the daily grind behind for a day, and consider with our speakers: what skills do I need to nurture today, to still strive in 2, 5, 10, 24 years as a UXer?

Think forward

Don’t only stay relevant as an individual – push the thinking of your organization as well! Be the person in the room who brings up the future’s big questions. Push your UX team forward to continue delivering value to your company’s bottom line and purpose!

Flex your imagination

By imagining what the future could bring, we flex our creative muscles – one of the most important muscles of a UXer. Let the fresh ideas, utopian hopes, distopian possibilities, and necessary actions fill you up with creativity to tackle your work already today.

Ever wondered what UXers around the world are thinking?

What the hot UX topics are in Nairobi or Manila? What keeps experienced designers up at night in Geneva or Argentina? Now is your chance to listen in or talk to the world!

Glocal

24 Hours of UX is run by 24 Labs, a non-profit made up of local and independent UX practitioners from all corners of the world. We cover 6 continents, and most of us have only ever met online.

Non-stop

In June 2020 we brought 24 hours of uninterrupted live online content to the global user experience community. Then we did it again in 2021, and 2022, bringing their stories to the global stage.

Community

We believe in the power of community, and support it through all our efforts. We put the limelight on the local grassroots communities in your region, wherever you live.
