NUX8 - UX & Design Conference
Brought to you by NUX and McrDig
NUX8 is an all-day event in Manchester focussed on how an understanding of people can help you define, design, and build better experiences, on the web and beyond. With international speakers from some of the biggest digital brands, the day will provide a wealth of practical experience you can apply right away.
The event is organised by Northern User Experience (NUX) in conjunction with Manchester Digital. NUX is an informal, volunteer-run community for people interested in usability, HCI, information design and all aspects of the user experience in the North of England. Our membership is as diverse as the field itself, with developers, designers, academics, usability specialists, accessibility experts and technical authors.
NUX is a not-for-profit group of people based in Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Liverpool. We are doing this because we love our industry. This event would not have been made possible without the help of our very kind and very wonderful sponsors.

All too often we see conference and event lineups full of the same or similar people, we don’t want that anymore. We want diversity. Diversity refers to a wide range of visible and non-visible characteristics; it’s about valuing variety, welcoming a range of backgrounds and opinions and embracing the benefits that differences bring.
