UX Salon 2014

UX Salon is a group dedicated to the professional practice and learning of user experience design. This coming April, join us in Tel-Aviv, for two days of networking and great talks by design professionals and industry leaders. The UX Salon conference theme is “Designing for Engagement”.


UX Salon’s mission is to bring you the most updated information in the UX world, practical tools and inspiration for your day-to-day work.

This event is intended for anyone who wants learn more about user experience design. This includes User Experience Designers, Product Managers, Interactive and Visual Designers, students, startups, interpreters and anyone who loves design.

Unlike many conferences, rather than calling for papers and speakers, we have an editorial approach — we put together programs based on current trends in the industry, and seek out speakers who are working in those areas to give inspiring, entertaining, but most importantly practical presentations.

Take a look at our event agenda for more information on the speakers lineup. We hope to see you and UX Salon 2014.




 Who is behind UX Salon?

Hey there! Nice of you to stop by. My name is Avi (@xgmedia) I’m a UX Consultant and the founder of UX Salon. In the the past year I’ve been invited to speak at international conferences across the world. I met amazing people and saw amazing talks that inspired me to want to create this event. As a designer I’m always curious and eager to learn more from others. My dream was to create an event that gives true value to participants by inviting to Israel some of the best speakers in the world for a day of inspiring conversation and UX learning.

I hope to see you in UX Salon 2014, it wouldn’t be the same without you.
