    In today’s fast-paced and ever-growing world, UX and the DC tech scene are no exceptions. UXPA DC is more than a conference - we aim to be your centerpiece to stop the spinning and bring everyone together as the “Community of Communities”.

    UXPA DC will facilitate casual group discussions and activities with local UX communities and partners to review common goals, objectives, and joint activities in order to:

    1. recruit new members interested in contributing and learning/teaching new skills

    2. better define how UXPA DC may be of support to established as well as incubating communities

    Hear what's going on in different groups, expand your network, be a part of the new and exciting projects that come out of our collaboration, and ensure that you get the most out of your professional opportunities!

    ​In the spirit of inclusiveness, this event is free and relaxed. All UX community leads, organizers, participants and enthusiasts are welcome.


    • Registration and coffee 10-10:30
    • Lunch 12-1
    • Break by 3 or keep the party going in downtown Arlington!
