Following a smashing first event last year, User Research London is back in 2018 for two days of user research learning, on 21st and 22nd of June. This year, the event will be bigger and better, with the first day dedicated to talks and a second day composed of interactive workshops.

Although the schedule is still coming together, some of the speakers have been announced on the event’s website such as Laurissa Wolfram-Hvass, Director of Research at Mailchimp, and Paul Andre, Research Lead at Workplace.

The list also includes Ben Cubbon and Nic Price, the Bristol-based duo that founded the research group Participant Needs, with whom People for Research have been working over the last two years to find out more about the user journey and the participants’ expectations when taking part in user research and testing.

People for Research’s Business Development Director, Jess Lewes, will be delivering a workshop this year, and the topic will be announced soon, along with the rest of the event’s schedule. Jess was also a speaker at last year’s User Research London, where she talked about the history of user recruitment and how the requirements have changed in user research from the point of view of a third-party specialist recruiter like People for Research.

Besides sponsoring the event, People for Research will also run its expert user recruitment clinic for the second year, offering free advice on how to find the right participants to take part in user research. We’ll launch the registration page soon, so keep an eye on our blog and on our Twitter account for more updates.

UX Bristol 2018

But User Research London is not the only event around the corner for us and for the UX industry. UX Bristol is also happening this summer, on 13th July, at the M Shed in Bristol. People for Research will also be sponsoring the eighth UX Bristol, organised by the Bristol Usability Group, where you will have the chance to learn hands-on user experience, research and design techniques from leading industry practitioners.

The schedule will include 12 workshops, organised in three different tracks. The tickets will go on sale in late May, and you can follow UX Bristol on Twitter for regular updates and the latest news.
