Event description



In our efforts to create better connections in the enormous UX community of Los Angeles we are trying something new!

Instead of putting 300 people in a room to passively sit and listen to a great speaker or 150 people scattered in various places in a bar like our previous happy hours, with most leaving without making a meaningful business connection, we're going to try using a mock speed dating format.

We'll give you a set of questions and you'll have 5 minutes to chat with someone you've never met! At the bell, you'll switch partners and continue these quick ice-breaker micro conversations.

Instead of a bar, we've teamed up with Slickdeals who are generously hosting us in their gorgeous offices in Hollywood - with 360º views, great food and drink!

It's our hope this event will lead to creating those quality relationships that help you in your career - long term.
