The UXUK Awards has recognised top talent from students to big brands including The BBC, easyJet and NatWest. User Experience, or UX, has become a mainstream remit for all organisations as it consistently and directly converts customer satisfaction and bottom line results at a significant level.
The awards is now running into it’s 5th year. The winners will be announced at the ceremony at the Crypt on the Green, Clerkenwell on the 9th of November. Spaces for the UXUK Awards event are limited and therefore primacy is given to entrants, with those shortlisted being priority attendees. However, non-entrants are welcome to apply for the free tickets to attend.
