Because I'll be spending most of the summer working on the next book (Presentation Zen Design), I'm keeping the summer travel schedule outside of Japan light. I really hope to meet you at one of these events below.
From Business To Buttons Conference,
Malmö, Sweden June 11-12
The 3rd annual Business to Buttons is the meeting place in Europe for interaction designers, business strategist and usability experts. If you want to expand your business, and become a leader in the UX field, this is a good place to get the tools and inspiration. The conference organizers believe that experience and interaction design have finally worked their way into companies. And with the economic downturn, the challenge is simple but vast: create user experiences that are the difference between success and failure. Here's the schedule. Learn more about the conference here. Register for the conference here.
Presentation Zen master class
in New Zealand July 8, 9,10
I'll be running three half-day Presentation Zen seminars as part of Webstock's Autumn series. The session on the 10th is for people who attended one of last year's seminars. I'm a big fan of Webstock (and New Zealand), so I was honored to be invited back to beautiful Wellington. Last year's seminars were a lot of fun. Here are some pics. No matter where you are in New Zealand, I hope you'll consider spending a day with us in Wellington. (Last year a few people came over from Australia and other parts of Asia/Pacific.) Here's the schedule. Register here for one of the days.
Tableau's annual Customer Conference
in Seattle July 20-23
The Tableau Conference is a great opportunity to join colleagues and top analytics experts for three days of information, interaction, insight and inspiration (the schedule). Here are the Top-11 Reasons to Attend the Tableau Conference this year. And here are the speakers. I'm really excited to meet all my old friends (and new ones too I hope) in Seattle, and I'm really looking forward to meeting Stephen Few for the first time. Stephen's new book is called Now You See It: Simple Visualization Techniques for Quantitative Analysis. Really good stuff; I'm a big fan. The conference is being held at the brand new Hyatt at Olive 8. Register here.
Look forward to seeing you this summer!
