Led by UIE's own Jared Spool, UX Thursday is six presentations from local superstars and keynotes from two leading UX experts. All UXT events are a collaborative effort between UIE and Vitamin T to help nourish local UX communities by providing networking and education opportunities.

We are also carrying on the tradition of our old friends at Bolt | Peters who put on User Research Fridays for years and asked us to keep that spirit alive after they were absorbed by the Facebook borg.

Our smaller venues ensure that you’ll always get plenty of time to exchange ideas with participants and presenters alike. Plus, it’s only a one day commitment, with a one day cost.

Vitamin T:

We spend our time connecting the best digital creatives in the industry. Sounds like a pretty sweet job, huh? We think so. Even better, we’ve been doing this for over 25 years as part of Aquent, so our talent network is unparalleled. We’re proud to say that we personally meet our candidates, have proprietary hands-on assessments, and are great at digging down to what our talent can do – and what they want to do – so we can make the perfect match.
