About The Web and Beyond
The Web and Beyond is a biennial two day conference organised by Chi Nederland for the user experience and interaction design community. Since 2006, we have been covering emerging and future trends in UX from both a practitioners and business perspective. Over the years, national and international thought leaders have been educating and inspring our audience of professionals, business stakeholders and UX enthousiasts. For an impression of previous editions check out our websites for 2010, 2008, or 2006.
This year’s theme: Momentum
These days, more than ever, organizations should be obsessed with their customers. If you work with User Experience practitioners (or are one yourself), you already knew that. But thanks to organizations like Forrester and Harvard Business Review, your manager now knows it, and her manager heard about it too. So, what is the next step? How do we make sure that this mass of believers in User-Centered Design gets up-to-speed on what is required, to gain the momentum that we, and more importantly our customers, deserve?
This year’s edition of The Web and Beyond, the biennial business-oriented conference by Chi Nederland, will hand you practical advice on how to get your organization obsessed with customers. Experienced presenters will help you become more professional, accountable and reliable, while staying creative and innovative. Case studies will highlight successful designs by showing that user value equals business value. Fellow practitioners will share their research findings, design processes and tools, and evaluation methods, to help you grow the practice of user experience in your organization. Join us in Amsterdam in September and make an impact!
