    Description:

    World Usability Day (worldusabilityday.org) is held annually around the world in 22 countries on November 13. 

    The international theme for this year is engagement. Technology, products and services are usable when they engage people.

    This is the year to think out of the box. How can you engage people to use technology, products, and services? What kind of design thinking needs to be incorporated, to keep people engaged? How can you engage those outside our field, to understand the importance of a good user experience? 

    Our diverse panel of experts will discuss their perspectives on current and future trends to engage with your users.

    Schedule:

    6:30 - 7:00pm -- Food & Drink + Networking

    7:00 - 8:00pm -- Panel Discussion

    8:00 - 8:30pm -- Continued Networking
