Only 16 weeks to go until UXcamp Europe 2016!

Dear friends of the UXcamp,

Only 16 weeks to go until UXcamp Europe 2016!

As every year the main event is on Saturday and Sunday (25.06 – 26.06.2016) with a warm-up on Friday (24.06).

We guess you’re all as excited as we are, so without further ado let’s share some news and answer some of your burning questions.

WHAT’S NEW?

First of all our organising team has grown and become more diverse: please say hello to the wonderful Debbie, Dee and Marie. – We are delighted to have you on board!

HOW DO I GET A TICKET?

Tickets will be released sometime in early April. Once the date is official you will find out via our main channels:

You’re probably aware that in the last years all 450 tickets were gone in under 2 minutes so if you want a guaranteed ticket you might also like to consider

1) Sponsorship:

UXcamp Europe wouldn’t be possible (and free of charge for our participants) without our lovely sponsors. So if you want to raise your profile in the UX community or let the world know that you’re hiring: This is the place.

As with the regular tickets, sponsorship slots are gone really fast but we still have some opportunities available for UXcamp Europe 2016.
Please get in touch and we will send you all the information. Sponsors get a guaranteed amount of tickets depending on their sponsorship level.

2) Volunteering

By volunteering to do a 2 hour shift at the cloakroom, registration desk or wherever your help is needed you are making an important contribution to a successful UXcamp and are also guaranteed a ticket. As with sponsoring, volunteer places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.

Please note: We will close the volunteer list before releasing the official tickets. So if you are willing and committed to be a friendly helper on the day get in touch.
(And yes, we do keep a black list of people who let us and the camp down. So only register as volunteer if you can really make it!)

CALL FOR SPONSORS

As mentioned above sponsorship slots are going really fast but we still have some opportunities available for UXcamp Europe 2016.
Please get in touch and we will send you all the information.

LAST CALL TO SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACTS FROM 2015

If you held a session at UXcamp Europe 2015 you should submit your abstracts ASAP. You will receive a printed copy of this official publication (with it’s own ISBN number) at this year’s UXcamp or we will send it to you if you can’t make it.

AND FINALLY: WE ARE BIG – BUT WE ARE STILL A BARCAMP

We get many requests asking about call for papers, keynote speaker slots or similar things you would find at a traditional, commercial conference.

That is not what we are about: we’re a community event organised by people who love UX for people that love UX and are all participants (not spectators)
during a fantastic week-end in June. The weather is usually also quite nice.

We invite you to study the timeless Rules of BarCamp if you are not sure what makes a barcamp different.

THAT’S ALL FOLKS

Take care and we hope to see you soon!

Your UXcamp Europe Team
