Midwest UX is a conference geared toward user experience designers, but also covers topics relevant to developers, content strategists, marketers, entrepreneurs, and more. It’s a non-profit enterprise, and the user experience conference organizers and producers are all volunteers each year. This is the fourth year for the conference.

#MWUX14It moves to different locations each year to helps foster growth and excitement in the hosting city’s User Experience (UX) community and the Midwest. In short, it’s a bit of a grass roots initiative to build stronger design/tech/ux communities in Midwest cities.

This year’s conference centers around what’s next in UX.
