MWUX 2018


Oct 11-13


Curiosity. Collaboration. Integrity.

MidwestUX 2018 will challenge us to advance our discipline through curiosity, collaboration, and integrity. Join us for three days in Chicago as we inspire and challenge one another with the fresh perspective that comes from cross disciplinary conversation.
