Essential insights will be exposed to founders, UX consultants and online business owners who understand that leveraging a kick-ass user experience will help them achieve success.

The event will start and conclude with a 30-minute networking hangout. Tasty Pinot Noir red wine and seltzer water will be provided and is included in the price. (Must be 21+ to attend.)
